Don't come in!I'm wanking.

Don’t come in!I’m wanking.

Hotel Rwanda is a romantic comedy about two oddball american tourists who meet in a hotel in Rwanda by chance.Not.Hotel Rwanda is the true story of the hutu genocide of the tootsi people back in the early nineties.This film is by no means a walk in the park,pretty heavy stuff in fact,and at times hard to believe that this kind of shit can happen in modern days.Don Cheadle is excellent in his performance of Paul the hotel manager who will do anything to save his friends despite him himself being a Hutu.The film highlights Africas corruption both with officials and the army.I don’t think i would have cast Nick Nolte,he doesn’t fit the bill as a U.N. dude with his raspy voice and old beaten face,but that’s just my opinion.

IMDB RATING      –     8.1
