After Hotel Rowanda, this was another shockingly amazing movie.

thanks for this great information. I checked it on the web and am interested to read it. Do you think it would be easy to read it in English ?

Maybe it's better for me to order it in French.

Anyhow, I thank you a lot for the interest. I will defeively buy that book

it's a very good movie indeed. With a pretty strong acting by Montreal's Roy Dupuis...

If you have really enjoyed this movie, Shake hands with the devil, I recommend you to read Immaculee Ilibagiza's "Left to tell", it will blow your mind away, and as a woman you'll even enjoy it more. Believe me, it's one of those books that once you pick up and start reading, you'll just have to go all the way to the end in one shot!


Thank you my dear

Yes the Last King of Scotland was in fact one the most violent film, but a good one.

In the Shake hands with the Devil (you can see it in French too: J'ai Serre la main du dibale) you will see less violence, but still get horrified.

There's also a short scene, where Dr Kushner is represented. I believe it's a " must see" movie. 

Thanks for your interest.

I didn't know of this film. I guess I must have missed it cause most Canadian Films are hardly shown here in France unlike Hollywood Productions unless they are from the French speaking Canada film industry. Will try and find the DVD.

Merci Beaucoup,


PS: The Last King of Scotland was also an interesting film although very hard to watch at times because of the violence.
