刚刚结束牢狱之灾的纳尔逊•曼德拉(摩根•弗里曼 Morgan Freeman 饰),竞选南非总统成功。他领导人们破除种族隔离制度,并身先士卒,雇佣白人护卫队,在各方面建立不同肤色的沟通。作为1995年橄榄球世界杯的东道主,南非重回国际体育大家庭。不过,南非的英式橄榄球队——队员均为白人的跳羚队,却被很多黑人看做种族歧视的代名词。为了破除隔膜,曼德拉高瞻远瞩,支持跳羚队与国外来访球队的交流比赛。他接见了跳羚队队长皮耶那(马特•达蒙 Matt Damon 饰),两人进行了推心置腹的交谈。后者带领着白人球员走访了南非各地,把橄榄球运动普及给普通民众,让这项运动成为了黑白联合的纽带……
  本片根据约翰•卡林的作品《与敌人战斗:纳尔逊曼德拉和一场改变国家的比赛》(Playing the Enemy:Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation)改编。 ©豆瓣

Invictus is a 2009 biographical sports drama film directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. The story is based on the John Carlin book Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation about the events in South Africa before and during the 1995 Rugby World Cup, which was hosted in that country following the dismantling of apartheid. Freeman and Damon play, respectively, South African President Nelson Mandela and François Pienaar, the captain of the South Africa rugby union team, the Springboks.[3]
Invictus was released in the United States on December 11, 2009. The title Invictus may be translated from the Latin as "undefeated" or "unconquered", and is the title of a poem by English poet William Ernest Henley (1849–1903).



Reception

The critical consensus is: "Delivered with typically stately precision from director Clint Eastwood, Invictus may not be rousing enough for some viewers, but Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman inhabit their real-life characters with admirable conviction."[15] Critic David Ansen wrote:[16]
Anthony Peckham's sturdy, functional screenplay, based on John Carlin's book Playing the Enemy, can be a bit on the nose (and the message songs Eastwood adds are overkill). Yet the lapses fade in the face of such a soul-stirring story — one that would be hard to believe if it were fiction. The wonder of Invictus is that it actually went down this way.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three and a half stars[17] and wrote:
It is a very good film. It has moments evoking great emotion, as when the black and white members of the presidential security detail (hard-line ANC activists and Afrikaner cops) agree with excruciating difficulty to serve together. And when Damon's character — François Pienaar, as the team captain — is shown the cell where Mandela was held for those long years on Robben Island. My wife, Chaz, and I were taken to the island early one morning by Ahmed Kathrada, one of Mandela's fellow prisoners, and yes, the movie shows his very cell, with the thin blankets on the floor. You regard that cell and you think, here a great man waited in faith for his rendezvous with history.
Shave Magazine's Jake Tomlinson wrote:[18]
Eastwood's film shows how sport can unify people, a straightforward and moving message that leaves audiences cheering. The sports, accurate portrayal and the solid storyline earn this movie a manliness rating of 3/5. However, the entertainment value, historical accuracy and strong message this movie delivers earn it an overall rating of 4.5 stars. Definitely, worth seeing.
Variety's Todd McCarthy wrote:[19]
Inspirational on the face of it, Clint Eastwood's film has a predictable trajectory, but every scene brims with surprising details that accumulate into a rich fabric of history, cultural impressions and emotion.

Plot On 11 February 1990, Nelson Mandela is released from Victor Verster Prison after 27 years spent in jail. Four years later, Mandela is elected the first black President of South Africa. His presidency faces enormous challenges in the post-Apartheid era, including rampant poverty and crime. Mandela is particularly concerned about racial divisions between black and white South Africans, which could lead to violence. The ill will which both groups hold towards each other is seen even in his own security detail where relations between the established white officers, who had guarded Mandela's predecessors, and the black ANC additions to the security detail, are frosty and marked by mutual distrust.
While attending a game of the Springboks, the country's rugby union team, Mandela recognizes that the blacks in the stadium cheer against their "home" squad, as the mostly-white Springboks represent prejudice and apartheid in their minds. He remarks that he did the same while imprisoned on Robben Island. Knowing that South Africa is set to host the 1995 Rugby World Cup in one year's time, Mandela persuades a meeting of the newly black-dominated South African Sports Committee to support the Springboks. He then meets with the captain of the Springboks rugby team, François Pienaar (Matt Damon), and implies that a Springboks victory in the World Cup will unite and inspire the nation. Mandela also shares with François a British poem, "Invictus", that had inspired him during his time in prison.
François and his teammates train. Many South Africans, both black and white, doubt that rugby will unite a nation torn apart by some 50 years of racial tensions. For many blacks, especially the radicals, the Springboks symbolise white supremacy. Both Mandela and Pienaar, however, stand firmly behind their theory that the game can successfully unite the South African country.
Things begin to change as the players interact with the fans and begin a friendship with them. During the opening games, support for the Springboks begins to grow among the black population. By the second game, the whole country comes together to support the Springboks and Mandela's efforts. Mandela's security team also grows closer as the various officers come to respect their comrades' professionalism and dedication.
The Springboks surpass all expectations and qualify for the final against The All Blacks—South Africa's arch-rivals. New Zealand and South Africa were universally regarded as the two greatest rugby nations, with the Springboks being the only side to have a winning record against the All Blacks up to this point.[4] The first test series between the two countries in 1921 was the beginning of an intense rivalry, with emotions running high whenever the two nations met on the rugby field.
Before the game, the Springbok team visits Robben Island, where Mandela spent 27 years in jail. There Pienaar is inspired by Mandela's will and his idea of self-mastery in "Invictus". François mentions his amazement that Mandela "could spend thirty years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put [him] there".
Supported by a large home crowd of both races, Pienaar motivates his team. Mandela's security detail receives a scare when, just before the match, a 747-400 flies in low over the stadium. It is not an assassination attempt though, but a demonstration of patriotism. The Springboks win the match on an added time long drop-kick from fly-half Joel Stransky, with a score of 15–12. Mandela and Pienaar meet on the field together to celebrate the improbable and unexpected victory. Mandela's car then drives away in the traffic-jammed streets leaving the stadium. As Mandela watches the South Africans celebrating together from the car, his voice is heard reciting "Invictus".

Invictus –quotes & dialogues

Nelson Mandela
1)        Forgiveness liberates the soul. It removes fear. That is why it is such a powerful weapon.
2)        You criticize without understanding. You seek only to address your own personal feelings. That is selfish thinking, Zindzi. It does not serve the nation.
3)        Brothers, sisters, comrades, I am here because I believe you have made a decision with insufficient information and foresight. I am aware of your earlier vote. I am aware that it was unanimous. Nonetheless, I believe we should restore the Springboks. Restore their name, their emblem and their colors, immediately. Let me tell you why. On Robben Island, in Pollsmoor Prison, all of my jailers were Afrikaners. For 27 years, I studied them. I learned their language, read their books, their poetry. I had to know my enemy before I could prevail against him. And we did prevail, did we not? All of us here … we prevailed. Our enemy is no longer the Afrikaner. They are our fellow South Africans, our partners in democracy. And they treasure Springbok rugby. If we take that away, we lose them. We prove that we are what they feared we would be. We have to be better than that. We have to surprise them with compassion, with restraint, and generosity. I know. All of the things they denied us. But this is no time to celebrate petty revenge. This is the time to build our nation using every single brick available to us – even if that brick comes wrapped in green and gold. You elected me your leader. Let me lead you now.
Francois Pienaar
4)        [when asked what Mandela wanted during their meeting] I think he wants us to win the World Cup.
5)        I may break my arm, my leg, my neck, but I will not let that freaking guy go.
Dialogue
High School Boy: [seeing passing motorcade] Who is it, sir?
High School Coach: It's the terrorist Mandela, they let him out. Remember this day boys, this is the day our country went to the dogs.
6)         
Etienne Feyder: Well, you know what they say about soccer. It's a gentleman's game played by hooligans. On the other hand, rugby is a hooligans game played by gentlemen.
Linga Moonsamy: Ja, ja, ja, I heard that one before. And it wasn't funny the first time.
7)         
[Jason, Mandela's chief of security, is waiting in the security office. There is a knock at the door]
Jason Tshabalala: Ah, that must be Jessie with the schedule. Come in, beautiful!
[four burly Afrikaners walk in, led by Etienne Feyder]
Jason: [springing to his feet] What's this?
Etienne Feyder: Mr. Jason Tshabalala?
Jason: That's me. Am I under arrest?
Feyder: Captain Feyder and team reporting for duty, sir.
Jason: What duty?
Feyder: We're the presidential bodyguard. We've been assigned to this office. [reaches into his pocket and removes a booklet] Here are our orders.
[Jason warily takes it]
Linga Moonsamy: You're Special Branch, right? [One of the men nods]
Etienne: [noticing Jason's incredulity] You'll see that they've been signed.
Jason: Well, I don't care if they've been signed [notices that they've been signed by Mandela. He folds it] Just wait here. [storms off]
8)         
[Linga and Hendrick, Mandela's bodyguards, are waiting for him to go running]
Hendrick Booyens: Gee, It's cold, man.
[Mandela exits his house]
Linga Moonsamy: Morning, Madiba
Nelson Mandela: How are you?
Linga Moonsamy: Fine, thanks.
Hendrick Booyens: Morning, sir.
Nelson Mandela: How is your family, Hendrick?
Hendrick Booyens: Top shape, sir. How about yours?
[Mandela stops in his tracks, suddenly weary, and looks at him]
Nelson Mandela: I have a very large family. 42 million. I don't think I'll walk today. [goes back inside]
Linga Moonsamy: [furiously] We never, never ask him about his family.
Hendrick Booyens: But he asks us about ours all the time!
Linga Moonsamy: Hey, think about it, man. He's separated from his wife, his children. How often do you see them here, huh? He's not a saint, okay? He's a man, with a man's problems. He doesn't need us reminding him about them.
9)         
Francois Pienaar: Can I ask you a question, Lieutenant?
Hendrick Booyens: Ja, of course.
Francois Pienaar: What's he like?
Hendrick Booyens: When I worked for the previous President, it was my job to be invisible. This President... Well, he found out I like English toffee, and he brought me some back from his visit to England.
10)      
Etienne Feyder: When does he take a break?
Staff Member: He says he rested enough in prison.
11)      
Brenda Mazibuko: You're risking your political capital, you're risking your future as our leader.
Nelson Mandela: The day I am afraid to do that is the day I am no longer fit to lead.
12)      
Nelson Mandela: How do you inspire your team to do their best?
Francois Pienaar: By example. I've always thought to lead by example, sir.
Nelson Mandela: Well, that is right. That is exactly right. But how do we get them to be better then they think they CAN be? That is very difficult, I find. Inspiration, perhaps. How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do? How do we inspire everyone around us? I sometimes think it is by using the work of others.
13)      
Television Announcer: Tell us Mr. President, have you always been a rugby fan?
Nelson Mandela: People don't realize that I played rugby myself when I was a student at Fort Hare. It is a very rough game, almost as rough as politics.
14)      
[Mandela and a colleague are discussing statistics for the World Cup]
Colleague: According to the experts, we'll reach the Quarter Finals, and no further.
Nelson Mandela: According to the experts, you and I should still be in jail.
15)      
Nerine: Thinking about tomorrow?
Francois Pienaar: No. Tomorrow's taken care of, one way or another. I was thinking about how you spend 30 years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put you there.

[reciting Invictus poem] Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole, I thanks whatever gods may be, for my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of fate, my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears, looms but the horror of the shade, and yet, the menace of the years finds, and shall find me, unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishment the scroll, I am the master of my fate - I am the captain of my soul.

#026

No. Tomorrow's taken care of, one way or another. I was thinking about how you spend 30 years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put you there.
