Documentary Feel & an Acting Treasure - A must see.
Just saw the San Francisco premier last night and it isn't a
dramatization - it's much more of a documentary -- Hotel is extremely
factual. CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS FILM! INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!
The Director and the story's protagonist were at the screening to
answer questions. We ovated him for almost 10 minutes. Near the end of
the q&a, an older man stood up and was called on. Slowly he commented
that as a Tutsi, the movie gave him a lot to think about and that it
may now be possible to find peace in his heart. The audience was
stunned. And believe me, it takes a lot to silence a San Francisco
One last comment, the film is indpendently made and distributed - no
Hollywood involvement at all (Terry George is British). There will be
no machine pumping out ads and radio anouncements about this one. Help
get the word out - great film!
