A look at the final moments of a ruler in Haiti as a violent revolution erupts around him

My ratings 7.0/10

My impressions:

The beautiful opening shots did not prepare the audience for the unfolding drama that will be laid out later. Each person has an agenda and none more so than the main character. The leader of a nation who believes that he was elected fairly by an adoring nation.

He could not come to terms with reality that people are disappointed with his track record. He did begin his climb up the political ladder by being the leader and saviour of the down trodden. Unfortunately once in power he became a different animal.

His grasp on the situation is shaky, coddled by a team of advisers and others who have vested interests. The final decision was just waiting for the right trigger.
