Great movie, but violent

I loved this movie, although it can be hard to sit through during the scenes were the Tutsi murderer the Hutus and even when they are waiting outside the camp gates. In one scene some Hutus try to flee and the Tutsi massacre all of them, and I don't mean just adults, one of the ladies was caring a newborn baby. If you don't particularly enjoy violent movies to begin with don't watch this movie, it is gruesome and violent, but if you can sit through it, it is worth to watch.
