The 80's

Gandhi [1982]

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

Extremely well told biography of Mahatma Gandhi, the small time lawyer who became the leader of the indian revolution against the british empire through his philosophy of non-violence. Ben Kingsley gives the performance of his career in his oscar winning role as the title character. Powerful, touching and one of the best movies of the 80’s. A triumph!
