“Anne Aghion asks a lot of tough questions in My Neighbor My Killer, the fourth and last in her series of films about the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. But the most difficult, posed on the posters for her new film, may be this: after the killing has ceased, and order has been restored, ‘How do you make it right again?’” – Larry Rohter, The New York Times

“Brilliant” — One of the Best Documentaries of 2009 – Jennifer Merin, Documentaries

“A triumph of patience […] and powerful humanitarian work” – Anthony Kaufman, Barnard Magazine
