Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/29/2009
"[A] quiet, probing film....[MUNYURANGABO] uses the fine-grained technique of cinematic neorealism to illuminate the psychological and emotional landscape of a still-traumatized place."
Box Office - 05/29/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "The film is worth great attention....Minimally scripted, the film showcases the whimsical abilities of the actors."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/22/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "It is in every frame a beautiful and powerful film -- a masterpiece....All dialogue is to the moment, and therefore we understand everything."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/27/2009
Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "Shot on location in Rwanda in two weeks, involved only local actors, and is in every frame a beautiful and powerful film -- a masterpiece."

Product Description:

This acclaimed Rwandan drama--the first full-length, narrative film in the Kinyarwanda language--explores the friendship between two boys as they try to overcome the gap between the Hutus and Tutsis. Munyurangabo (Jeff Rutagengwa) and Sangwa (Eric Ndorunkundiye) escape the city of Kigali with two different purposes: the titular boy desires revenge for the death of his parents who were victims of genocide, while his friend wants to see his childhood home. However, when they arrive, Sangwa's parents are unhappy to see his new friend because of his race. Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award, MUNYURANGABO played at a variety of festivals around the world, including Cannes, Berlin, and Toronto.
