Hotel Rwanda

I admit that I cry easily. Especially while watching movies or reading a book. Blame it on a high developed fantasy and empathy. But for Hotel Rwanda, you don't need fantasy, nor empathy. Because even a rock would cry while watching this movie. The reality is so gruesome and tragical, that the writer of this movie simply had to translate the real story of Paul Rusesabagina, a kind of African Oskar Schindler, into images. I remember that after seeing this movie, I called my mom in tears, yelling that the world is so unjust. And it is what it is. Just look what is happening right now in Ukraine and in Gaza. History repeats itself over and over again. When will we finally learn? Life would be so much easier if everyone tolerated its neighbour. But I guess it's in the human nature to discriminate and to be greedy. Fortunately, every genocide also tells the story about a hero, someone who has the courage to stand up who shows that humanity is never lost... Paul Rusesabagina is one of those heroes, you just have to watch for yourself...


  1. I really want to watch that movie, but I haven't got around to doing it yet.

    1. You should, but make sure you have enough kleenex with you ;)
