Drama
Over a three-month period in 1994, machete-wielding Hutu tribesmen in the African nation of Rwanda hacked to death 800,000 Tutsi men, women, and children. Footage of the unfolding genocide was broadcast around the globe -- but the world community did nothing to stop the carnage. Based on a true story, Hotel Rwanda concerns the Hutu house manager at a European-owned luxury hotel who, through sheer wits and will power, manages to save 1,200 Tutsis. Don Cheadle is superb as Paul Rusesabagina, the almost willfully naive yet uncommonly decent man who slowly begins to realize that neither the United Nations nor any other world body plans to intervene. British director Terry George wisely eschews fancy camerawork or editing, allowing the horror and confusion of the real-life events to speak for themselves. Geared toward a mainstream audience (on-screen bloodshed is kept to a minimum), the film educates and moves, making it perhaps the most important film released in the past year.
