A bright shining lie by Terry George( Visual )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of LTC John Paul Vann (Paxton) and his work as a military and civilian advisor in Vietnam over a ten year period (1962-72) until his death in an accidental helicopter crash. As a military advisor, Vann attempted to fight corruption in the Vietnamese army, recognizing the need to build trust among the Vietnamese peasantry. When his recommendations were ignored by the U.S. military, he exposed falsified battle reports and other deceptions to a New York Times reporter, effectively ending his military career. As the war escalated, however, Vann returned to Vietnam as a civilian advisor under Nixon's "Vietnamization" program, ending as the defacto commander of Vietnamese forces in the successful defense of the Central Highlands during the 1972 Easter Offensive. The film also examines Vann's character flaws, the chief of these being his adulterous nature and affairs with Vietnamese women which resulted in a forced marriage to a Vietnamese schoolgirl whom he had gotten pregnant

"In 1980 and 1981, imprisoned Irish Nationalists embarked on a hunger strike to protest Margaret Thatcher's British government. Empowered by their belief that they were prisoners of war rather than convicted criminals, the young men refused to wear prisoners' uniforms and began a hunger strike to protest their status both in prison and in terror-stricken Northern Ireland." "Led by Bobby Sands - who was elected to Parliament while on strike in jail - and supported by the firepower of the IRA, the prisoners endured a grueling test of faith and will. Some Mother's Son tells their story through the shared experience of two mothers - one a strident nationalist, the other a pacifist - who must come to terms with the political beliefs that may take their sons' lives."--BOOK JACKET

Kigali, Hauptstadt der Republik Ruanda im Jahr 1994: Der Hotelmanager Paul Rusesabagina ist Hutu. Seine Ehefrau ist Tutsi. Er persönlich hat bisher keine Probleme mit den Vertretern der ethnischen Minderheit in Ruanda, doch viele seiner Hutu-Landsleute hegen einen regelrechten Hass auf die Tutsibevölkerung. Die Stammeskonflikte in seinem Heimatland nimmt er zwar mit Sorge wahr, kann sich aber nicht vorstellen, dass die politische Situation weiter eskaliert. Sein Hotel ist voll von UN-Blauhelmsoldaten sowie internationalen Journalisten. Die Hutu-Regierung plant ein Friedensabkommen mit den Tutsi-Rebellen - die Lage scheint sich zu entspannen. Doch Pauls Hoffnungen sollen sich nicht bewahrheiten. Über Radiostationen wird die Hutu-Bevölkerung aufgestachelt und radikalisiert. Im Blutrausch durchkämmen Militärs und die Zivilbevölkerung das ganze Land. Jeder, der in den Verdacht gerät Tutsi zu sein, mit einem verheiratet zu sein oder nur mit ihnen zu sympathisieren, wird mit Macheten und Feuerwaffen niedergemetzelt. Paul gelingt es seine Familie und Nachbarn in seinem Hotel in Sicherheit zu bringen, indem er einen Hutu-Offizier besticht. Sein Hotel gleicht immer mehr einem Flüchtlingslager, während draußen das Morden an den Tutsi weitergeht. Doch der Hotelmanager hat nach wie vor gute Kontakte zu Regierungskreisen und hofft diese nutzen zu können, um seine Familie und die restlichen Flüchtlinge in seinem Hotel außer Landes zu bringen, bevor auch sie dem mörderischen Hass der Hutu-Milizen zum Opfer fallen

"Vier junge Iren und ihre angeblichen Helfer werden 1975 Bombenanschläge auf Londoner Pubs vorgeworfen. Sie werden durch Folter "geständig" gemacht und teils zu lebenslangen Haftstrafen verurteilt. ... Der in die Skandalchronik der britischen Justiz als der "Guilford Four"--Fall eingegangene Prozeß dient als Hintergrund für einen für Gerechtigkeit und Verständnis plädierenden Film, der durch große emotionale Kraft berührt. In Inszenierung, Kamera, Schnitt und schauspielerischen Leistungen gleichermaßen beeindruckend." [film-dienst.de]
