Participatory democracy is such a fragile thing, too easily traded in (via fear) for personal protection. I appreciate what this film (and the graphic novel which it translates to the screen) stands for at its core. Not only is it a ripping good plot, but it depicts in fantastically orwellian fashion how a modern society can close down. Let us hope this forever remains fiction.
Very good information, and delivered in an exceptionally coherent fashion, which helped to answer some nagging concerns I have had recently. I hope everyone chooses to see this, it's available on google video. Go democracy!
Wow. What a brilliant film regarding the plight of calcutta's brothel children. I hope that this publicity will continue to grow the awareness that all the children in brothel districts need to be helped in order to escape their common fate. I hope my family can help in one way or another.
The story of Jean Dominique is one of passion, the pursuit of freedom and the sacrifice that so many make along the way. Do a brief study of the history of Haiti, especially the last 100 years, before watching and it will all make sense. What an amazing story!
