Hotel Rwanda

On the plane back to Tunisia, I finally got to see Hotel Rwanda, starring Don Cheadle.

I heard a lot about this movie and saw the trailer, which really made me want to see it.

It tells the true life story of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager who housed over a thousand Tutsis refugees during their struggle against the Hutu militia in Rwanda.

It’s a really great, powerful and touching movie, a must-see for sure. Don Cheadle does an amazing job in it, with so much passion.
It portrays how one man put everything on the line to help his countrymen while the west and the whole world turned their backs on them, starting with Belgium which played a big role in the creation of the problem.

I highly recommend this movie. It was nominated for 3 Oscars and 3 Golden Globes, as well as a bunch of other awards that it was nominated for or won.

My score for it is: 8/10.
