In Haiti, Dr Jeudi Forstner is kidnapped and trapped in a prison cell under the charge of voluntary manslaughter. His wife, Marie Forstner, believes that he did not commit the crime. She begins a journey to free him. What she encounters would become one of the greatest true stories ever told.
Much credit should go to doctor and filmmaker Hugues Gentillon, who has synthesized a virtual story out of Haiti's reality.
Love Me Haiti is a popular story, suspense filled, beautifully crafted and genuinely brilliant! I like the way in which tension builds up throughout the story.
No doubt, Love Me Haiti will fuel discussion about geopolitical corruption, which is the basis of the film, and will also send more people to read about the filmmaker, which is also the basis of the film. I wonder how much of the story is about Dr.Hugues Gentillon himself? The story also has an experimental feel. The beginning is the end... The end is the beginning...
It left me wondering: "How close to the truth did the antagonist actually come?"
