Movie Info

Sean Penn heads back behind the camera to direct this drama about a love affair that blossoms between the director of an international aid organization (Charlize Theron) and a relief-aid doctor (Javier Bardem) amid the horrors of war-torn Liberia. Although they both care deeply saving lives, their love is tested not only by the grim situation they find themselves in, but also by a difference of opinion on how to solve the conflict. Jean Reno and Jared Harris co-star.

Penn, who has become well-known for doing what he can to try and ease the agony of global crisis spots (like Haiti), would do well not to mistake his own genuine compassion for an artistic impulse.

Tainted by some of the worst dialogue ever written, it's impossible to connect to the characters on screen who, despite their best efforts and good looks, can't, for the life of them, find a way to lift the story out of the gutter.

Although it invests too much time on a corny romance, the film delivers when portraying the brutality of the genocides happening in South Sudan and in Liberia. [Full review in Portuguese.]
