Quotes

Jean Dominique: Clearly our silence and restraint irritated Dany Toussaint, and perhaps his masters. The mistake of Dany Toussaint was to think that a bit of terrorism on the part of street thugs would give access to our microphone. If they keep trying to use these screamers in front of Radio Haiti Inter to shut down the Delmas Road, he will break his teeth! The microphone of Radio Haiti will stay closed to him! Yeah I know that he has weapons! And that he has money to pay and arm his henchmen. Here I have no ...

Amazing documentary about an amazing guy
24 April 2006 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most inspiring documentaries I've ever seen. Jean Dominique's unparalleled quest for freedom really made my day and deepened my enormous respect for such idealists. His trademark smile was an invitation to join his struggle. His gestures, his talk, his manner, show an honest and strong man, who could not be bent. Only bullets could (and did) stop him.

Another extremely touching aspect of his story is the level of bonding they had with his wife. It is such a rarity and such a wonderful thing to happen, that you cannot but feel happy that these two people have met and enjoyed their life together.

As a documentary, it is flawlessly shot. The timing is right, each episode's duration is well calculated, it flows smoothly and it respects its material.

Absolute must-see.
