100 words - White Dove Up - review

Touching and subtle drama about US Marine Clark Cole, who, during a peace mission in Somalia, falls in love with a local woman, and through her, learns the plight of the Somali people and the entire African continent in its proper historical and cultural context. Cole converts to Islam, deserts from the army and dedicates his life to improving the living conditions of the Somalians by working in a hospital and teaching at a primary school. Critical of US foreign policy and third world aid, this movie doesn’t have any easy answers but took theaters by storm anyway.
Yeah, right.
