A local Hutu official is persuaded to implement the government's policy against the Tutsi: To completely wipe them out. Josette, a beautiful young Tutsi girl struggles to survive the killing by taking refuge in a church, supposedly protected by the UNO forces. Meanwhile, Josette's brother is hunted down and murdered and her boyfriend rescued by the rebels. But the Hutu Catholic priest betrays Josette's family and only agrees to spare her life is to submit to the nightly violations. By the time she is reunited with her boyfriend, neither of them can face the brutal reality of their situation: she is pregnant and bears the priest's child, which she immediately abandons. 100 Days was shot in Kibuye, the beautiful landscape had been the back drop to some of the worst atrocities in 1994.

everyone should see this film
31 May 2002 | by (Aberystwyth, Wales) – See all my reviews

It deals with the time of the genocide in 1994. The film is strong. Of course the whole story is not told, but it seems a good start in trying to relate the events. I feel that I need to learn more, and I'd like to read comments from more knowledgeable people. I wonder if they would agree with my one line summary?

The film makes clear the crucial role of the UN. How can one stupid superpower be allowed to cause such a blunder?
