My Neighbour, My Killer

USA 2009

Details IMDB

Seen 8 April 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 7.8/10

The people of Rwanda attempt to reconcile after the genocide through an open process of admission and forgiveness

My ratings 8.0/10

My impressions:

The survivors, women, mothers
No one left in the family
Even when they wanted to be among the dead
That request was denied

They are dying, in sorrow
In solitude

The killers are amongst them
They have returned
And everyone is supposed
To reconcile, to look forward
To a better future

Living in harmony

How could we ever know
Deep inside, what triggered
Such atrocities, such inhuman acts

And the survivors
Live on until they can meet again
With their loved ones
In another world
