Shake Hands With the Devil, Version Three

Via Mad About Movies, I read about the fictionalized version of Lieutenant-General Romeo Dallaire’s haunting account of the Rwanda genocide, Shake Hands With the Devil. It’s a Canadian production, and stars Roy Dupuis as Dallaire. I thought Dupuis was excellent in The Rocket. Here’s the trailer:

I’m judging a book by its cover, but this version (there’s also a documentary of the same name) seems more hopeful and redemptive than the book, which felt pretty bleak to me.

On a barely related note, Marina also links to the trailer for The Mist, a new horror film based on one of my favourite Stephen King short stories. If you ask me, they show way too much of the baddies.

    I’m looking forward to this film. I’m a big Roy Dupuis fan (esp. in the tv series La Femme Nikita and the mini series The Last Chapter).

    On a related note, D’Allaire is the cover story in this month’s MOODS Magazine. He discusses his struggle with PTSD. MOODS is a great magazine for anyone who suffers from a mood-disorder, and is available at Chapters or online:
