Will give you nightmares.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darfur [DVD]  (DVD)
My wife and I watched this movie yesterday and both of us endured a sleepless night, so harrowing were some of the scenes. The slaughter of the villagers reminded me of the WW2 film Come And See [DVD]  an equally disturbing film. Genocide will only be allowed to continue if right minded people ignore atrocities - which is why this film is so important - to raise awareness of the plight of innocent human beings, being systematically killed purely because they are black African. I have to confess that the idea that a couple of journalists would feel they could fight back against the Janjaweed, with just two Beretta pistols, and the African Union captain was a little far fetched, but it is a small point, given the moral viewpoint of the film; that we should not ignore what is happening to our fellow humans, no matter how far away from us they happen to live. An outstanding film that demands to be watched by any person needing to have their moral compass pointed in the right direction.
