A Ice Cold Fist Grabbed My Heart

It’s a couple of weeks ago already that I watched the movie Hotel Rwanda with Don Cheadle, Nick Nolte en Sophie Okonedo.

Whilst doing his time in prison he not just need to survive but also has to make decisions that can cost him even more years of his life. (more…)
