An extraordinairy film,
This review is from: Sometimes In April [DVD]  (DVD)
This is film making at its best, the kind of film that should win all kinds of awards but doesnt. Not because its a 'worthy' film but because it tells a vitally important story that needs to be seen by a vast audience in a clear, powerful, passionate,accurate and deeply moving way.
Every aspect of it is brilliantly done - the direction, the acting, the costumes, the cinemotography and the editing. It educates without preaching. It just tells the story, because the story itself is powerful enough. Like all the genocides of history it shows what we are capable of - a million people murdered in a few weeks while the international community wrung its hands and wallowed in inaction. Ignorance propoganda and hate are a dangerous combination in any culture.
