Dr Garrigan (James McAvoy) expects to find exotism in Uganda. He certainly will find it, especially after meeting the country's President, Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker) and becoming his personal physician. A chain of events will change Garrigan's life, forever.

I just recently saw a preview for this movie, and I knew I had to see it. Now that I have, I definitely wasn't disappointed. This was a well-told story that keeps you hooked from start to finish.

I really enjoyed this movie, despite some brutal scenes, which were not overly drawn out. Well written, excellently acted.

Astonishing!

In the contemporary period of filmmaking it's an arduous undertaking to discover a film that truly stands out. With this film director Kevin Macdonal... read more

"Katsottu: 30.1.2014 nauhalta Nuori skottilääkäri Nicholas Carrigan (James McAvoy) lähtee Ugandaan ja päätyy diktaattori Idi Aminin (Forest Whitaker) henkilääkäriksi. Aluksi Nicholas pitää Aminia hyvänä johtajana sekä ystävänään, mutta ajan mittaa hänen käsityksensä Aminista muuttuu paljon, ja hän joutuu taistelemaan hengestään. Elokuva oli ihan mielenkiintoinen, muttei sitten lopuksi antanut Idi Aminista niin hirveän pahaa kuvaa, vaikka sitän hän oli. Näyttely on ku"

"30.12. (DVD) Onhan tämä aiemminkin nähty, mutta kertaus on opintojen äiti. Kivaa dramatisointia, Aminin näyttelijä luo eläytymisellään uhan tunnetta. Päähenkilö puolestaan saa paljon pesää. Huonona puolena mielipuoli diktaattori ei tässä elokuvassa säilytä irtopäitä jääkaapissa tai piiloudu alusvaatteisillaan komeroon. Mikä Saudi-Arabiaa riivaa, kun antavat muun syntisyytensä lisäksi vieläpä turvapaikan Aminille?"
