Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for an Oscar for this film, however, as for many others. But let’s not dwell on that because we believe on his street one day turn over the truck with the Golden men. This time Leo appears to us as a desperate smuggler, trading sales of diamonds during the civil war in Sierra Leone in 1999. The film addresses the issues of violation of human rights, talks about the chaos of civil war, where the sides are fueled by greed and do not stop to send to war young boys. And the price of hundreds of lives – one is a rare diamond. In the movie enough and shooting, and dialogues – all in moderation just enough to not get tired neither from one nor from the other.
