''Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always.''

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

One of Richard Attenborough's best films

“I am all for ambitious and stately films, which is why I watched Gandhi. And I like Richard Attenborough, I think not only was he a talented actor and director but his films are very interesting. Gandhi is certainly one of his more interesting films, along with the underrated Cry Freedom.Gandhi is just a wonderful film, and do I think it's one of Attenborough's best? Along with Cry Freedom and Shadowlands, yes it is. This film is for me his most ambitious and his most stately, and it is very compelling. True, it is long and perhaps leisurely in pace, but it is well worth the watch for several reasons.Visually it is superb to look at. It was almost like watching a David Lean film, it has the beautiful scenery, the stunning cinematography and the sweeping colours that a Lean film does. I als” read more

"21.4 Olen tästä jo aikaisemminkin maininnut, mutta näissä Oscareita kahmivissa historiallisissa elämäkertaelokuvissa on usein se ongelma, että filmin vahvuudet pyörivät vain ja ainoastaan yhden vahvan roolisuorituksen ympärillä ja kaikki muu sen ympärillä on pelkkää kulissia, jonka ainoana tarkoitusperänä on luoda uudelleen historiallisia tapahtumia. Kuten hiljattain katsomani Last King of Scotlandin tapauksessa, jossa Forest Whitaker veti elämänsä roolisuorituksen Idi Amini"
