Earth Made Of Glass Reviews

    This documentary splits it's time between the efforts of a Rwandan man to discover who killed his family and where the bodies are, and the broader story of the Rwandan genocide and the allegations that the government of France was complicit. The first story is stretched out far too long. While the account of this man's survival and the death of his family is fascinating, half of the running time consists of this man asking the same questions of people who don't know the answer. The broader story only fares marginally better. It makes an intriguing prima facie case against France, but does not provide any background information, leaving the viewer to ask such obvious questions as why France would do such a thing. Unexpectedly, this film was produced by actor Channing Tatum.

    Meanders. Not very informative. The personal side is good, but narrow. The political accusations were not very supported.
