Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The shoulder rank insignia of the Canadian Army Colonel in charge of the UN contingent is incorrect: The rank badge should include the word "CANADA" at the outside edge of the epaulet. He is also shown wearing shoulder board insignia which is more typical of a naval officer instead of a senior officer in the Canadian Army. He should have shoulder-mark insignia that slips over the shoulder straps.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the scene where it is raining, it can be seen the sun is shining in the distance in a couple of shots looking away from the hotel. The reflection off Dube's wet coat also looks like sunshine.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): During the opening scene in the film, a sign for MTN Mobile can be seen. MTN is a South African communications company and although it is the main mobile provider in Rwanda now, it was not in 1994.
  • Nick Nolte's character (Col. Oliver) is modeled in part on Lt. Gen. Roméo Dallaire, the Canadian commanding officer of the UN Peacekeeping mission in that country who attempted to interfere with the Rwandan Genocide despite his superiors' indifference to the atrocity. Dallaire was also the subject of Sundance audience award documentary Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Roméo Dallaire, and witnessed such horrible acts in Rwanda that he later suffered severe post-traumatic stress disorder. Despite these facts, this is the only fictional character (name and facts) depicted in the film.
