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.

A life completely lived with integrity, a lesson for us all., 3 May 2004
Author: (weissbud@earthlink.net) from United States, Brooklyn

One of the most important films of this era. A life lived with complete integrity and service to his community of the people of Haiti with passion and great courage. Everyone should see this movie and show it to their children as they enter adolescence. Dominigue is a model of courage whose life stood for something greater than his own personal agrandizement. He saw the greatness of each human spirit and brought that forward no matter the cost. Jonathan Demme had to know that Dominique's life was constantly in danger as he made the film and the film was made with the passion that Dominique himself would have sanctioned and in fact must have done so or the film could not have been made. I will own a copy of the DVD when it comes out to show to the young people I work with in the schools in the poorest areas of this New York City.
