Blood Diamond: Directed by Edward Zwick. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou, Jennifer Connelly, Kagiso Kuypers. A fisherman, a smuggler, and a syndicate of businessmen match wits over the possession of a priceless diamond.
“The torturous road of South African diamonds to the greedy fingers of an indifferent world makes this new Edward Zwick movie one of the most powerful Action/Adventure/Dramas to come out of Hollywood in a long time. The perfect balance between entertainment and a thoughtful social commentary helps the center of the story to have a real heart and a palpable respect for us, the audience. All this praise and I still have not mentioned Leonardo Di Caprio or Djimon Hounsou but Iu0026#39;m going to. Di Caprio opens a new door, introducing us to a character who is a first in his already extraordinary career. He startled us as a very young man with u0026quot;Whatu0026#39;s Eating Gilbert Grapeu0026quot; before he fell with a serious case of Titanictis. Now, after a three a long and serious Scorsese cures, this spectacular actor makes me believe that we havenu0026#39;t seen anything yet. Remarkable. As remarkable as the soulful Djimon Hounsou who manages to give the film a visible soul. I was moved and yes, I must admit, surprised. Apart from the visual and interpretative prowess of u0026quot;Blood Diamondu0026quot; there is a realistic view of a third world country as shattering as the unforgettable one in u0026quot;City Of Godu0026quot; Donu0026#39;t miss it.”
