Storyline

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. In Kibuye Church, the site of an actual massacre, Rwanda actors played killers and victims that were only too familiar to them. Written by Association Travelling

4 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first of the six dramatic feature films that I know of concerning the Rwandan genocide, and judging from the number of votes registered for it on IMDb this film is relatively unknown. Being that it seemed to be largely a personal project by one person, this film really surprised me. The cinematography, the editing, the acting, and the storyline were remarkable. Or perhaps that one individual had such a hand in it is why it turned out so well. I consider Hotal Rwanda an exceptionally good film, but the characterizations had a good-person-bad-person feel to them. In 100 days the characters seemed more real with flaws in most everyone, and perhaps that is why the film is less known. There is plenty in this film to upset certain people, especially when they feel that their own people or organization is targeted, but it is the sum total of shortcomings in society and individuals through which such things happen.
