Once upon a time there were two children nursed by same woman. Azur, a blonde, blue-eyed son of a noblewoman and Asmar, the dark skinned and dark-eyed child of the nurse. As kids, they fought and loved each other as brothers do. As grown ups, they mercilessly become rivals in the quest years later, when Azur is being haunted by memories of the legendary Djinn-fairy, and takes it upon himself to journey all the way to Asmar's homeland to seek it out. Now reunited, he finds that she has since become a successful merchant, while Asmar is now a member of the royal guard.

Sharing the title of his biography, this 2004 documentary charts the career of Romeo Dallaire, the force commander responsible for the United Nations Assistance Mission to Rwanda during the 1994 genocide, where 800,000 Tutsis and moderates Hutus were killed in approximately 100 days. Dallaire was responsible for the initially 2500-strong UN peacekeeping mission that ended in catastrophic failure. Dallaire was out-gunned, outnumbered, under-funded, and marginalized by his own superiors. He flailed against the United Nations. Rather than expand his forces to the asked-for 4000 soldiers, the UN LOWERED his troop strength to 260 soldiers in a country of 8 million. France was running their own operations to support genocidal Hutus against Tutsi rebels (who ultimately ended the genocide on their own). The United States under Clinton refused to call it a genocide (the film has footage of Clinton trying to pass the buck). Dallaire and his men witnessed some of the greatest acts of human barbarism in recent memory (massacres of children, people hacked to death, bodies lining the streets with dogs eating the corpses, rape). The film also documents his return to Rwanda 10 years later a shaken man (there is a confrontation between Dallaire and a Belgian senator where the white European's concern is still, 10 years on, only for White Europeans). The film is full of graphic footage and stills taken during the massacre (you will see people executed on camera). The failures of the world to prevent Africans from dying needlessly reinforces the racist nature of the United Nations, that is either too big, too weak, or too lazy to do anything. I'm beside myself with anger. The lessons of Rwanda have already been repeated in Darfur. Dallaire says, "Every life counts". And he's g-ddamn right. Woodchuck sez, "Watch this."

O detetive ciborgue Batou vai investigar e descobre o grande dilema da sociedade do momento: robs no querem se tornar humanos e humanos no querem se tornar robs, mas na situao em que o mundo se encontra, isso inevitvel. O filme apela para rituais msticos e citaes filosficas. uma meditao profunda sobre a condio humana apresentada como animao, que alis de tirar o flego. Combinao perfeita de 3D, texturas e cartoon lembram muito a esttica dos videogames. Dos trs filmes da srie, este sem sombra de dvidas o melhor.

Sarah O (jp) wrote: This film is just okay. I think a lot of the diagnoses in the film are outdated and some are just laughable. I agree with some of the other comments that Lisa speaking in rhyme got annoying and redundant. Sure glad both the title characters were cured by the end of the film by just their sheer love for one another.

Robert B (fr) wrote: Safety Not Guaranteed is a feel good movie with light comedy and indie charm. The plot and acting, while not outstanding, are fine for what it is. The film moves along at a decent pace and comes to an end quickly enough. If viewed with modest expectations, Safety Not Guaranteed is fine for an evening's entertainment. Time travel fans should be warned that this is not a movie about time travel, really at all.
