I couldn't calm down after watching the movie Hotel Rwanda.
I don't know much about the history of Africa, except that it used to be a colony of many European countries. Even at the moment, we know very little about Africa. I always thought that the Holocaust happened only in China, but I never thought that such a terrible thing had happened in another corner of the world. And these things have happened in the last ten years.
Rwanda in 1994 was turbulent. With the withdrawal of Belgian troops, the regime of the Xitu and Hutu people changed, and there was no peace in Rwanda. Due to the long-term oppression, the Hutu people who just received the political power began to retaliate crazily. They made cruel massacres again and again in Rwanda, and more and more Xitu people were killed. In the city, the smell of death is getting heavier and heavier. The western world abandoned Rwanda because it didn't do them any good. Those who stay in Rwanda can only rely on their own strength.
Among these forces, there is a mainstay, and I think it can be said that he is Paul. He is a Hutu, and he was able to live his life safely, but his wife is a Hutu, and many of his neighbors are a Hutu. At first, he simply wanted to protect his family, but the development of the situation made him realize that he should save more people with his own strength. Yes, he did. He used his own strength to save more than 1,000 Xitu and Hutu refugees in the hotel. He gave more than 1,000 people a chance to be born again! I think I should pay tribute to him. He is a great man!
"Hotel Rwanda", an old film, has been playing for a long time, but has not seen it. If there is a film review early, I am afraid that it will not satisfy my appetite and add disappointment. Today, I finally have the idea of watching. I don't talk about good or bad. There are too many film reviews. Many of them are mine, and neither will I. Turn on the computer, I wonder if I can understand it.
When scenes flashed and faces appeared, I couldn't restrain my heart, let alone my tears. With this short text, I just want to record my feelings at this time and keep my feelings.
In the war years, in the flames of war filled with smoke, unarmed lives were brutally killed, but there was still a fearless heart, and people were admired and shocked by the light of life. In the face of fresh life, money is nothing, only to save more lives, then the money has value. Only in order to save more lives can one's own life be abandoned. All of this, what's the point? ! In the cruel despair that humanity is about to be extinct and grieved, the rescuer of life still blooms the brightest flower of brave love of human beings. In the tears falling down suddenly, it is the fire that mankind expects to live forever, and it baptizes the riddled heart. We sublimate each other's love, and our souls dance and sing in salvation.
In peacetime, those ugly faces, in the corners where they think they can be unscrupulous and unknown, always sprout their animal desires, revealing deception and peeping at money ... Their hearts have already returned to ancient times, and under their still human appearance, they have no shame to expose their needs and instincts that animals and animals are ashamed of themselves. Because the only thing they have to do is to lose their self-humanity and debauchery.
Is human nature good or evil? I think from the perspective of animal instinct, it is very normal to do something that harms others and benefits others intentionally or unintentionally in order to preserve oneself. This is also the choice that the law of natural selection plays a key role at the critical moment of life and death. For this character similar to Schindler's list, he tried his best to save people and even abandoned his beloved wife and children. Why did the hero do this? May be due to professional dedication.
The hero in the play is a very good hotel room manager, who is familiar with business, has good human resources and is good at getting benefits for himself. Even his wife tries to bribe others to get in touch, so she can be said to be a master of human feelings. However, because of the fatal one, he took the wife of a nation hostile to himself, which made his family suffer great threat in wartime. At the beginning, he just wanted to save his family, and he said he could not help but protect himself when his neighbors suffered. Only the next son suffered psychological trauma, and his wife and daughter were instantly pushed to the brink of death. Again and again, they exceeded his ability and anticipation. He gradually lost his ability and confidence in protecting the whole family, and he was ready for the whole family to die. This process was very uncomfortable and painful. He placed his hopes on the western army, the tribal generals he had made before, and the hotel management, and he was disappointed again and again. However, all these were his life-saving straws, and he could only look forward to the improvement of the situation. I think, for the hero with such high emotional intelligence, hiding in a hotel is a conservative choice. First of all, most of his own property has been used to redeem the lives of his wife and daughter, and it is difficult for money to buy high-level people to leave the local area; In this way, we can only protect ourselves and our families with the advantage of our own hotel management, which just happens that the departure of foreign management gives us an opportunity to be the master of creativity, and at the same time, we can establish a shelter for protecting our wives and daughters, and at the same time, we can also show our working skills in front of senior officials of foreign companies, which is convenient for future promotion. It is a rational and optimal choice to have such a determination during the period of war and turmoil. Only after that, the situation continued to be bad
Kind of like Schindler's list and Hacksaw Ridge.
Create heroes with stories, and heroes save a group of people.
Or rich, or determined.
Heroes have limitations, at least they are children of middle-class families. Even if there are one or two characters in the civilian class, their heroic road will be interrupted due to cognitive limitations.
Heroes need accumulation and opportunities.
It is very likely that you will set foot on the road that cannot be turned back in a moment, or you may suddenly discover the value of life in a moment. Sorry, compassion is the basis for many people to determine people's goodness.
Let me think about when the protagonist started to help others. Yes, it was his wife. If an angel comes into his life, he will discover the glorious point of human nature like an angel. From the moment I helped my neighbor escape, although bribery was used, it was nothing to be result-oriented. In the progress of this little incident, he scattered all his wealth and saved the names of more than 1,000 people. Even if children are separated, they will eventually be reunited.
I want to cherish the feeling of being lost, spin a thousand pieces of silver, all of them come back!, or my family is the most precious. I may not be so great as to sacrifice myself and save others, but if there is a little bit of conscience around me guiding me, the result will be unknown.
Peace at the moment is hard-won. In the past, I always thought about being ill-timed, only hated not being born in troubled times, and I couldn't make contributions and make a name for myself. I know that opportunities are equal in any age, but later generations have different evaluations. You can achieve this moment, so can another time. This is the bottom spirit.
I finally finished watching it. Although I have seen the killing forbidden zone and God forgot Rwanda, after watching Hotel Rwanda, I still couldn't get out of my chest. After drinking two mouthfuls of saliva, the feeling of despair and helplessness still couldn't dissipate, even though the ending of the movie was perfect.
I wanted to turn it off several times in the middle, but I finally finished watching it intently. I paused several times in the middle, not because of cruelty. I have seen too many cruel and real pictures, but the helplessness that overflowed the screen almost overwhelmed me. At the most desperate moment, yes, expectation did come. Ironically, it came to take away the spectators and bring another despair.
"God, it was horrible, and then they continued to eat dinner." The reporter said calmly, without anger or even mood swings, it was so real that every one of us had done it. For the vast majority of people, we can only rely on ourselves, which you may not agree with. It is probably because you haven't experienced that kind of mood yet, and I hope you will never have this experience.
"If I can't come back, you have to jump, and I want you to promise me." At that moment, I seemed to be that man, and I seemed to realize that despair, and it was the most decent decision they could choose. But those 1 million Rwandans who had no time to make a choice in dealing with the wielded butcher knife could not leave their last words, and even despair was fleeting.
"You are a kind and intelligent person. Unfortunately, you are black and African. In the eyes of Westerners, a million of you are not as good as a vote." Ironically, those countries that claim to be the most polite society cry for human rights and laws all day long, but they are silent when humanity is destroyed and laws are trampled on.
For those spectators, they are lucky because they have a stronger motherland, and for the Rwandans in the hotel, they are lucky because they have Paul, but for the 1 million Rwandans outside the camera, they have no Paul but only themselves.
