This is a very powerful film, based on a very powerful book, that will leave you asking the tough questions about governments and racial relationships. Kevin Kline plays Donald Woods, the editor who indergoes a change of opinion and a change of character (from someone who thinks they believe in what's right, to someone who's willing to act on what he knows is right) and Denzel Washington never looks less than dignified as the great activist Steve Biko. The death of Biko, and Woods' escape from South Africa are just two of the images that will stay with you long after watching the movie, and the acting is so superb it is easy to forget that these are two American actors with affected accents. See it. It will do you good.

I have never provided reviews for films or CDs or any other service. However for this film, I will make an exception because it's deserving of it. In short, this film made me cry each of the two times I have watched it. This isn't meant to be especially unique even for a guy, but I questioned and in fact feared whether the film would have the same impact on me the second time I watched it and amazingly it did. Thing is, the film simply reaches a climax at the very end that will be very hard for anyone not to be touched by. It's a great story about 1 man's bravery and fight for justice. Clearly we know of another more prominent figure in South Africa who showed all these qualities including great leadership, but Biko had these too. Fantastic performance by Kevin Klein and Denzel Washington. I wish there had been more about the life of Stephen Biko.

Format: DVD
This is an excellent and important film about fighting the despicable prejudice of the apartheid regime in South Africa. At the time it was made there was a little bit of criticism that Attenborough had chosen to focus on the white character, Donald Woods, rather than the black character Steve Biko. This was missplaced. His film is about the need for liberal-minded people to ask themselves whether they are doing enough to combat tyranny. It traces the personal journey of Woods from the position of priviliged liberal to a more advanced and outspoken oppositon to the South African government. Besides, it would be untrue to claim that the black characters are not fully developed here. We get a clear sense of where Biko is coming from and why his struggle was so important. Obviously the film is a militant film, but what's wrong with that, when what you're militating against is something so blatantly unjust as apartheid? The film is well-made, well-written and a moving experience. You also get a glimpse of the physical beauty of that part of the world, even though the film was actually shot in Zimbabwe.

Rubbish copy of what is a decent film.
Tiny little letterbox picture that doesn't seem to transfer to any screen size very well, plus the audio is strange - seems to be a badly dubbed audio track that is slightly out of sync which is very distracting.
Hopefully there will be a blu-ray soon because the quality of this DVD is very poor.

Basically, this is a great film, very underrated. However, viewing pleasure is somewhat spoiled by the letter box format. I really can't understand how the makers of this DVD could imagine this format would do it justice. Disappointing.

Would Steve Biko have preferred a black South African to have written this book? I don't know. But it was given to Donald Woods to write it as he was there. It is an important book as a record of a part of Biko's life, and takes its place in history, though there is much more to Biko than this. It is also important as one (white) journalist's experience of Apartheid, though there is more to be said about that also.
The movie is well worth watching, though it is perhaps a little too glib at times. No a 'great', maybe, but worth its place on your shelf.

I remembered seeing it at the cinema years ago, and it moved me, thought it was worth buying, but it proved not as good as I remembered it. My fault,
John.

Saw this at the cinema when it first came out. I enjoyed it nearly as much second time around.
