superbly performed and directed
2 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched about everything out there and reasonably available set at the time of the Rwandan genocide. This film sets itself apart from all the rest. Unique. It principally concentrates on what happens with one specific person, though I suspect her experience has much in common with countless individuals who sought escape in the forests. Things happen to people in such circumstances, and the depiction in this film I see as realistic. That is, when I see what transpires I think yes that is very well how a person may act in such circumstances. Perhaps not what a viewer may think beforehand even after reading the reviews. Note that the votes are pretty well spread out. Different people see it differently and I saw it differently from the other reviews. The lead actress was well chosen. A couple reviews I see did not think well of the ending. For me it was perfect. If you like art films, can appreciate minimalism, and prefer the serious over pure entertainment, then you may like this film.
