The Power of One

HD

John G. Avildsen has his tried-and-tested style, which he remains faithful to today. I do not watch many movie movies under the category Drama, but this was great and now I am more The Power of One thanks to Sport. It is a movie that truly knows what it is and wastes not even a second in conveying what that is. You just have to watch The Power of One. This movie has destroyed my mind and nothing will happen after that. It is proof of that - a film to be great doesn't need expensive special effects. - just superlative acting. You can watch it online here on this website and add your own subtitles if you are not native english speaker.... Show more

The Power of One is an intriguing story of a young English boy named Peekay and his passion for changing the world. Growing up he suffered as the only English boy in an Afrikaans school. Soon orphaned, he was placed in the care of a German national named Professor von Vollensteen (a.k.a. "Doc"), a friend of his grandfather. Doc develops Peekay's piano talent and Peekay becomes "assistant gardener" in Doc's cactus garden. It is not long after WWII begins that Doc is placed in prison for failure to register with the English government as a foreigner. Peekay makes frequent visits and meets Geel Piet, an inmate, who teaches him to box. Geel Piet spreads the myth of the Rainmaker, the one who brings peace to all of the tribes. Peekay is cast in the light of this myth. After the war Peekay attends an English private school where he continues to box. He meets a young girl, Maria, with whom he falls in love. Her father, Professor Daniel Marais, is a leader of the Nationalist Party of South Africa. The two fight to teach the natives English as Peekay's popularity grows via the myth. Peekay loses focus until he sees the success of his language school among the tribes. Daniel Marais comes to stop Peekay's English classes and Maria is killed during the fight. He and Guideon Duma continue the work in hopes of building a better future for Africa.... Show more
