1h 58m | Drama

During the Rwandan genocide, a dissolute French journalist, Bernard Valcourt (Luc Picard), meets Gentille (Fatou N’Diaye), a beautiful young waitress, who is tragically mistaken for a Tutsi. The swimming pool at the luxury hotel in Kigali where Gentille works is a gathering spot for expatriates, aid workers, Rwandan officials, businessmen, prostitutes, and hotel employees, and is, in many ways, a microcosm of life in war-ravaged Rwanda. As the love between Valcourt and Gentille becomes stronger, so does the onslaught of civil anarchy and rumors of war.

Based on a novel by Gil Courtemanche.
