An absolute perfect realization of Dallaire's book of the same title. "Shake Hands With the Devil" not only remains cohesive with Dallaire's accounts, but proudly represents Canada's film industry. Dupuis broke my heart when I watched the film.
Hmm....This movie was a meh. It had a few explosions, but the people in the movie didnt even care to move. Im sorry but when a huge explosion goes down, you move....Other then that, it was horrible
You could have heard a pin drop in the theatre I was in. Except for the occasional gasp that is. It also the first film I have ever been to where there was no rush to exit the theatre. Everyone waited until all the credits rolled before they slowly began to exit the theatre in silence. Very profound and disturbing film. A must see for all.
Great movie! As a military wife,I was amazed...I had no idea what goes on in "peacekeeping". Thank you sooo much for the insight, General.
This movie was so well done and true to the book and the plight of this country.If a picture is worth a 1000 words,this moviesays it all!Read the book twice.My prayers are for a mighty warrior who went to battle with no weapons and his hands tied behind his back by the UN.
Really good movie, touching and informative.
I can't get this movie or the tragedy that occurred out of my mind.
Knowing General Dallaire made this a very special film. I was disapointed at the attendance - testimony that we as a public still "do not care" and history will as a result repeat itself. Well done - mon General.
A must see movie me and alot of my friends give it 5 stars !!!!!!
tastefully tells a horendous story with dignity and courage
Horrifying, compeling and heart wrenching. Canadians can stand up and be proud!
It is one of the few movies I've watched that I could not get it out of my head. If you are only going to watch one movie this year, this is a must see!!!
very moving. Tribute to the way Canadian officers are trained.
Consistent with previous accounts of the Genocide from Brent Beardsley and Romeo Dallaire, but more horrible as the details are added to the narrative. Slightly flawed filmmaking, yet totally heartwrenching and effective.
Anything that helps make people aware of what happenned is fantastic. Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire is a hero for what he tried to do for Rwanda and the rest of the world should feel very ashamed.
