  • "Gandhi no era un gobernante de naciones ni tenía dones científicos, sin embargo este hombre pequeño y modesto, hizo lo que otros antes que él no lograron. Llevó a un país entero a la libertad - dió esperanza a su gente. Esta extraordinaria e inolvidable película explora la vida de Gandhi, el hombre del siglo. --Envase."@en
  • "Ce n'était ni un chef d'Etat, ni un scientifique de renommée mondiale. Mais pourtant, cet homme modeste et de petite taille a réussi là où d'autres avant lui avaient échoué: il a mené tout un pays vers la liberté. Et il a laissé à son peuple un héritage précieux: l'espoir. Ce film illustre non seulement la force et le courage d'un homme, mais aussi d'un peuple. Il célèbre aussi les magnifiques paysages de l'Inde et la résistance de ses habitants, que l'esprit de Gandhi continue d'habiter, même après sa mort."
  • "In tracing his life from 1919 to his assassination in 1948, 'Gandhi' has been praised for its evocation of the Indian scene which was also required to be in accord with the 'official' Indian view (the Indian government was a major investor in the film). Attenborough's film focused the mass audience on what J.K. Galbraith has called 'the strength of asymmetry' - the meeting of violence with committed non-violence, repression with carefully conditioned disobedience. In striving for an 'epic' dimension, to what extent does 'Gandhi' mystify history? Is dramatic cause-and-effect substituted for the representation of historical processes? For example, in the film Gandhi discovers his role because he is thrown off a train. To what extent is Gandhi recast in a Western mould?"@en
  • "Gandhi no era un gobernante de naciones ni tenía dones científicos, sin embargo este hombre pequeño y modesto, hizo lo que otros antes que él no lograron. Llevó a un país entero a la libertad-dió esperanza a su gente. Esta extraordinaria e inolvidable película explora la vida de Gandhi, el hombre del siglo. Se tomaron 20 años para desarrollar este magistral épico y en 1982, reunió nueve Premios de la Academia incluyendo Mejor película, Mejor Director y Mejor Guión Original. Con conmovedor detalle, la vida de Gandhi, sus principios y la influencia de su fuerza hacen explosión en la pantalla con escenas tan gráficas como la de la horrenda masacre en Amristar cuando las tropas Británicas abrieron fuego sobre 15, 000 hombres, mujeres y niños desarmados y la marcha dramática al mar donde Gandhi llevó a miles de sus compatriotas para comprobar que la sal del mar pertenecía a todos y que no era únicamente privilegio Británico. Una mirada al centro del corazón y alma del hombre, "Gandhi" es un épico clásico tan eterno como el Gandhi mismo."
  • "The story of a small, modest man who led a nation to freedom and whose teachings, philosophy and life have influenced thousands."@en
  • "The film spans 56 out of Gandhi's 79 years. It starts with his days in South Africa, where Gandhi is seen as a young attorney, who is thrown out of a first class compartment in spite of having a valid ticket. Angered at this humiliation, Gandhi decides to protest for the rights of Indians and other coloured people. It is here that he meets with his first success. His fame spreads to India and he is invited to return home to take part in the freedom struggle. On arrival, he is shocked at the poverty in the country and undertakes to travel all over the country to witness, at first hand, the atrocities of the British Empire. Gandhi's struggle to win freedom for India through his non-violent approach, his belief that men are more good than evil and his spiritual ideas all form a part of this saga, the biography of a fascinating world leader - both spiritual and political."
  • "1983. Gandhi realizes that the laws are biased against Indians and decides to start a non-violent protest campaign for the rights of all South African Indians. The government finally relents and recognizing rights for Indians. Gandhi goes back to India, where he is now considered something of a national hero. He is urged to take up the fight for India's independence from the British Empire. Gandhi agrees, and mounts a non-violent campaign of unprecedented scale. The campaign generates great attention and the Britain face intense public pressure. Weaken from World War II, the Britain finally grant India's independence. Religious tensions between Hindus and Muslims erupt into nationwide violence. Gandhi declares a hunger strike, saying he will not eat until the fighting stops. Pakistan is created for the Muslims and it is hoped that the violence will abate. Gandhi is opposed to the idea. Gandhi spends his last days trying to bring about peace between both nations. He angers many dissidents on both sides, one of whom finally gets close enough to assassinate him."@en
  • "Fiction. Drame biographique. En 1893, Mohandas K. Gandhi, un jeune avocat d'origine indienne est victime de racisme en Afrique du Sud. Il se dévoue, dès lors, à défendre ses compatriotes aux prises avec des lois discriminatoires.

Ironie du sort, Gandhi, l'apôtre de la non-violence, meurt assassiné l'année suivante. Avec Ben Kingsley, Rohini Hattangady, Roshan Seth, Ian Charleson, Geraldine James, Saeed Joffrey."

  • "This biographical epic about Barister Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is really a celluloid masterpiece that has excelled the existing excellencies in every department of film making, right from direction to photography to art designing. The plot of the movie revolves about how a simple young man from India goes to England to become Barrister and comes back to India and motivates and mobilises the whole Indian nation to run the English out of India and finally gets assassinated by his own countrys fundamentalists. Though this is more or less a biography of a single person, nowhere it reflects that way. The plot lucidly shows the most crucial stage of the Indias struggle for freedom. It introduces to the audience how a nation can win its independence with one of the most powerful instrument, that is non-violence."@en

Quella notte segnerà l'inizio della sua missione nella vita. Gandhi comincia le sue proteste con lettere, articoli sui giornali, raduni contro le discriminazioni razziali del Sud-Africa. Alle reazioni violente della polizia, Gandhi, sanguinante per le bastonate, reagisce caparbiamente disobbedendo con la non-violenza. Convinto dell'uguaglianza evangelica di tutti gli uomini Gandhi denuncia le leggi discriminatorie contro gli indiani. Gandhi finisce in prigione, ma ormai nulla lo ferma: torna in India e viene accolto trionfalmente a Bombay. Gli inglesi reagiscono violentemente provocando vere e proprie stragi. Molti indiani vengono arrestati. All'età di 79 anni Gandhi viene ucciso da un estremista indù."@it

  • "Nur ein Mann konnte das britsche Empire bezwingen und seinem Land die Unabhängigkeit geben. Sein Ziel war die Freiheit, sein Weg die Gewaltlosigkeit und seine Waffe die Menschlichkeit. Richard Attenborougs Film beschreibt das Leben Gandhis - einer der grössten Persönlichkeiten des 20. Jahrhunderts. Gandhi geht 1893 als Rechtsanwalt nach Südafrika, um die dort lebenden Inder gegen die strikten Apartheidsgesetze zu vereinen. Er praktiziert dort zum ersten Mal den passiven, gewaltlosen Widerstand, der später zum Kennzeichen seines Freiheitskampfes gegen die Briten wird. Ab 1915 lebt er dann wieder in Indien und verfolgt nur ein Ziel: Indiens Unabhängigkeit vom britischen Empire. Aber mehr als 30 mühsame Jahre vergehen, bis sein Traum wahr wird und Indien 1947 die Unabhängigkeit erhält. Gandhi - sein Name steht für eine Lebenseinstellung die den Kurs der Geschichte entscheidend geändert hat und noch heute Millionen Menschen beinflusst. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)."
