Verified Purchase. What we see in this film is the affect Mandela had on all types of people, in this case a white man who was his guard in different ways over many years who was forced to hate the South African blacks and believe that the Apartheid was right, good and even approved by God!
However deep inside he was torn simply because his best friend, when he was a child, was black. By playing with his friend he learnt one of the black languages, which is how he became Mandela's guard in the first place.
Despite this film being a true story which in my opinion always makes films greater, I didn't think this film was a great film because it doesn't reveal much about Mandela's personality, but it is good.
I would definately recommend it because it inspired me. Thanks to this film I found out about the South African Freedom Charter.
After watching Edris Elba in mandella it's interesting in seeing more about the great man himself I came across goodbye bafana by accident and bought it straight away.
The story is fantastic it is based on the gaurd that looked after Nelson Mandela whilst he was in prison and theyer friendship this gave a different perspective to this great story.
I thoroughly enjoyed the film and would recommend it. Report abuse. This was a very interesting side of Mandela's story and one you don't hear about very often.
She went on to say that there was no excuse for the "historical negligence in this movie" — stating that its implicit dismissal of the contradictory accounts of Nelson Mandela and others could be seen as insulting.
In his own autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom , Nelson Mandela mentions James Gregory in two occasions. The first was during his imprisonment in Pollsmoor :.
I had not known him terribly well there, but he knew us, because he had been responsible for reviewing our incoming and outgoing mail.
At Pollsmoor I got to know Gregory better and found him a welcome contrast to the typical warder. He was polished and soft-spoken, and treated Winnie with courtesy and deference".
The second occasion that Mandela mentions Gregory in his autobiography is on the day of his release in from prison:. In the years that he had looked after me from Pollsmoor through Victor Verster, we had never discussed politics, but our bond was an unspoken one and I would miss his soothing presence".
The Making of Goodbye Bafana , on the Goodbye Bafana DVD, contains an interview with Nelson Mandela where he speaks of James Gregory:.
Well-informed and courteous with everybody. Soft spoken. Very good observations.
