<p>Set in post-genocide Rwanda, <em>Munyurangabo</em> follows two young men as they make their way from Kigali, the Rwandan capital, to the farm where one of the boy's parents live. His guest brings a machete along. <a href="http://movies.nytimes.com/2009/05/29/movies/29muny.html?partner=Rotten%20Tomatoes&ei=5083">A.O. Scott at the Times</a> says the film "allows weighty themes of vengeance, justice and forgiveness to hover around the characters and their actions rather than trying to dramatize them too pointedly. As a result <em>Munyurangabo </em>at times drifts from oblique understatement toward inscrutability and vagueness. <strong>But it also conveys a powerful sense of individuality and place, bringing home the sensual and material reality of Rwanda</strong>, a country that functions, for many in the West, as a near-abstraction, a synonym for unimaginable cruelty. </p><p></p>Unlike Terry Georgeâs earnestly melodramatic <em>Hotel Rwanda</em>, [director Lee Isaac] Chungâs film, the first narrative feature in the Kinyarwandan language, leaves the violence off screen and in the past. But the enormity of the 1994 massacres â during which at least 800,000 Tutsis and dissident Hutus were killed, many by their own neighbors acting on the orders of the Hutu nationalist government â is if anything underscored by the absence of graphic physical evidence."
