    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    By detailing the allegiance between Tutsi Muslims and Christian Hutus, and the fatwa issued by a Muslim leader forbidding his followers to participate in the massacres, the film is hopeful rather than horrific, even as it describes events of impossible savagery and hate. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    After seeing Kinyarwanda, I have a different kind of feeling about the genocide that took place in Rwanda in 1994. The film approaches it not as a story line but as a series of intense personal moments. show more

    Cast with both professional and novice actors (which results in uneven performances), the beautifully shot film is filled with exquisite moments. show more
