Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom


Trailers are designed to thrill the viewers, to make them want to watch a film, to crave for it. But it usually takes a huge display of screen titles, music riped off from the Inception score and a selection of the best bits of the movie. But for Nelson Mandela, it is different.

For little more than a minute, all it takes is a touching voice-over by Idris Elba, while we see him playing the South African walking with kids. That’s it. Watch this trailer, and I assure you that you will start counting the days until the film is released.

Great story, great actors.

And great man.
