This film moved me beyond comprehension, it is and will remain my
favourite film of all time, mainly because it has almost every emotion
all rolled into its 157 minutes. What is the hardest part for me to
take is that whenever i want to hear the amazing music and songs from
the film, I have to put it into my DVD player, so I was wondering if
anyone anywhere knows who sings the songs in the film and where they
can be found, as I have looked everywhere I can think sporadically over
the past 5 years. My favourite quote from the film is when in court the
advocate says "But your own words ask for direct confrontation, isn't
that a direct call for violence?" Biko replies "Well you and I are in
confrontation now, but I see no violence!!"

this is one of the best movie about south africa.
A terrible missed opportunity.
There was a great film to be made about Steve Biko. Sadly this wasn't
it. Denzel Washington - never the most flexible of actors - is totally
unable to convey the great charisma that Biko had. Attenborough's big
crowd scenes are laughable. The Soweto massacre wasn't like this, three
neat lines of children ( some doing cartwheels!) marching happily into
the guns of the soldiers. With Biko dead the film rapidly descends into
farce. If the struggle against Apartheid was anything it was a black
people's struggle yet somehow we are all supposed to be gripped by the
escape of a white man and his family. I'm sure Donald Woods was a
decent man and he would be the first to say that Biko was important
while he wasn't. Penelope Wilton's accent is pure Hampshire and she
seems completely unaware that she is in South Africa at all. at all.
The Wood's family dog gets more lines than the black maid. As the
family make their escape one the women I saw the film with -
incidentally one of only about a dozen black people in a large, full
cinema - whispered "This is like the sound of music." She had a point.
Overall this is a film by a well-intentioned if somewhat inept white
liberal about a radical black people's struggle. And really South
Africa needs well-intentioned white liberals like it needs a hole in
