Hotel Rwanda 2004

War Movies

In 1994 the whole world did nothing to stop the genocide in Rwanda, where the decades of tensions caused by the colonial past erupted in unstoppable rage and mindless violence. Hutu militia armed machetes prayed on any Tutsi they could have found - no matter if they were adult, children, men or women - they just put their plan of extermination of Tutsi into the action.


Paul Rusesabagina, manager in the Milles Collines Hotel in Kigali, tries to keep away from the politics. In a country torn by constant conflict between Hutu and Tutsi it is a wise choice, but the raising tensions leave no one indifferent. One of his suppliers, Georges Rutaganda, puts a pressure on Paul to join the Hutu militia, but Rusesabagina tries to have good relations with both sides since different people are guests in his hotel. This time Georges tells him something that Paul wasn’t expecting - there is plan to finally exterminate all the Tutsi in the country and Hutu militia called Interahamwe will begin their final solution on a signal "cut down the tall trees". Paul is worried, he is Hutu, but his wife Tatiana is Tutsi, which puts their whole family in danger. Soon the violence in the streets begins and paramilitary units attack neighbours of Paul Rusesabagina.

War movie based on a true story of Paul Rusesabagina, who helped over 1000 people survive the horror of genocide in Rwanda. It is one of the most moving films ever, showing how hell on Earth looks like when civilians are dying from brutal attacks and the world just looks indifferent. But looking at how Americans did not do nothing for years in Syria it shows how history did not taught them anything.


Notes

  • Nick Nolte's character, Colonel Oliver, was inspired by Canadian Lt. Gen. Roméo Dallaire.
