Moving DocumentaryBy Linsey (6 reviews) from Sherborne , 04 Aug 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]A very moving documentary focusing on the return to Rwanda, after 10 years, of the Head of the UN mission in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide - Romeo Dallaire. A marvellous documentary which raises all kinds of questions about the nature of man, of evil and of the West's failure to get involved despite their knowledge of the horrors that were unfolding in Rwanda, Dallaire emerges as a remarkable figure who tried so very hard to raise international awareness while living in a nightmare.

at least they triedBy a customer , 25 May 2013It was both great and humbling to see my fellow country men (Ghanaians) and the Canadians trying their best to help out during this terrible period.

Heartbreaking horrorBy a customer , 16 Apr 2013So shocking,should be shown in high schools to educate the next generation that this should never be allowed to happen again. Admiration for the men who stayed behind to help. There was no way that everybody could be saved,but believe they did the best they could. Should be a heavy fine to the nations who turned rheir backs on Rwanda.

[Highly rated reviewer]one of those sad stories that is so unbelievable it has to be true, at once horrific, human and compulsive
the fragility of lifeBy j22 (1 review) , 23 Jan 2013a very moving documentary following the story of a general who struggles to not only prevent but to cope (psychologically) with the genocide in Rwanda. makes you reflect on the state of the world and how fragile life really is. personally I am not religious but the theme throughout helps define a battle between good and evil.
