      Audience Member Great film! I read the book (entitled Un dimanche à la piscine de Kigali), and am amazed at how the Director was able to capture such a powerful story on the screen. Great casting, and incredible performances. If you liked Hotel Rwanda, you'll love this. Really worth watching. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I read the book first which was g0od, but the film didn't live up to it. i can't help but feel that budget limitations hurt this one. Luc Picard was excellent in the lead, but the film felt long, wasn't super engaging, and generally couldn't have been improved all around. It's a shame as an important and interesting story. Skip it unless really interested in Rwanda. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Tres touchant! Je pleurais beaucoup!Un film tres excellent! N'est-ce pas @Ayeola John-Charles? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This one moved me immensely. A well made and definately thought provoking movie on Rwanda, it's problems and definately a creatively made story about "lost love" which took your mind off the problems going on for at least a little while. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Touching but disturbing... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Un docu-fiction poingnant et percutant qui, au travers d'images violentes et de dialogues bien menes, montre l'ampleur et l'infamie du genocide rwandais qui au dela de l'apparante guerre ethnique revet des allures de conspiration politique. On aurait cependant atteint la perfection en ne preservant pas le spectateur de scenes encore plus violentes et de confrontations aux enjeux politiques plus virulentes.
