excellent documentary
9 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mandela is documentary style film for those older than 21 years old. Young teens and children may not understand all that goes on in the film or what the film is all about. A good deal of Apartheid went on when I was a teen or going to college and I did not follow world events at the time. It is good to have Mandela himself describes the the action and his own thoughts rather than have them portrayed by others. Mandela is a compelling documentary. It is for a night of learning, of listening to Mandela's side of the story. Just like I did not understand the civil rights movement of the 1960s (because 1. I was a little girl 2. I had basically no interaction with blacks and 3. I was totally unconcerned), I do not understand how people can treat another person the way blacks were treated here and in South Africa. However, it is a good historical film and should be seen by those who enjoy historical films. No popcorn, no card playing, just attentive learning. I give it five thumbs up.
