I´m not sure that´s the title in English. We saw the film in Colombia. Two comments:
There was a story in the New Yorker a couple of years ago about a real individual who could easily have been the model for the character played by Di Caprio. I wonder if anyone remembers it. I don´t recall the title.
As we exited the theater following the final blurb about there being two hundred child soldiers in Africa it occurred to me we had just viewed the film in a country where there are probably at least several thousand.
Films like this reduce the demand for and thus reduce the cost of diamonds for everyone.
Happy anniversary sweetie.
Yikes! What a memory you have. Thanks. Oh well movies about diamonds are good enough for me. I´d never buy one.
Because you saw a movie?
My wife just forced me to watch "Meet the Fockers". I wanted to shoot all those Fockers.
I thought this was terrific, the more I see of Di Caprio, the more I like. I thought his character in this was very compelling. I liked the main character's struggle with his relationship to his homeland (it's an interesting angle for the viewer to take amongst the terror) and the subject matter of the film itself is obviously particularly evocative.
