Biography of Mahatma Gandhi, the lawyer who became the famed leader of the Indian revolts against the British through his philosophy of non-violent protest.

Richard Attenborough's Masterful Epic

Brilliant is too light of a term to describe this epic. I usually don't fall for epics, but when I do I really like them. This is a movie where you don't care how long it is (in this case it's 3 hours 8 minutes), you just sit through it and enjoy every word that is uttered... every movement by Gandhi is wonderful and you realize how much of a hero this man truly was... not was, is. This man is sti... read more

A phenomenal biopic!

"They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me, then they will have my dead body. NOT MY OBEDIENCE!"

For decades, Richard Attenborough's sweeping epic biographical film Gandhi has been incessantly subjected to critical acclaim and abject disparaging. The film won no less than 8 Oscars in 1983, including the holy three (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor) in addition to... read more

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (139 movies items)

"31.5. Voihan se olla niinkin, että Gandhi ei ole hyvä elokuva. Mielestäni kolmeen tuntiin on jopa sisällytetty vähän materiaalia, ja mutkia vedellään suoriksi. Toki jo heti alkuun kerrotaan, ettei kenenkään elämää voi kertoa yhden elokuvan aikana. Siksipä onkin ymmärrettävää, että Gandhin elämästä on valittu ne tärkeimmät hetket, jotka voi jakaa kolmeen eri osaan. Ensiksi kerrotaan nuoresta herrasta, joka saa kipinän itsenäisyystaisteluun Etelä-Afrikan reissullaan. Pu"

" Notes: Even though I did like this movie, somehow, it didn’t completely win me over. I mean, it has nothing to do with Gandhi, the guy was just amazing and one of the most aspiring human beings that ever lived and Ben Kingsley was just really impressive in the best performance of his career and yet the whole thing was still missing something in my opinion.

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this  flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Eventually, even though I did like this movie, somehow, it didn’t completely win me over. I mean, it has nothing to do with Gandhi, the guy was just amazing and one of the most aspiring human beings that ever lived and Ben Kingsley was just really impressive in the best performance of his career and yet the whole thing was still missing something in my opinion. I don’t know, maybe I was too young when I first saw it but, at the end of the day, even though it was really respectful, which was fine, it was also too straightforward, at least, that’s my opinion. I guess it goes with the territory though. Indeed, with such a beloved man, there is not much actual space to be rea” read more
