You should sing your songBy MoveslikejaggzMaroon5 (1 review) , 28 Oct 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm Moves like Jagger and I'm 10 years old.
Its worth renting this film just to let your kids watch it! Harry Bellafonte is an amazing man and he has done way more important and influential things than the role-models of today!
After waching this film I was no longer sure that I wanted to be a doctor or a scientist. I realised that I wanted to make a difference in the world and achieve the extra-ordinary feats that Harry Belafonte has. His life was committed and based around helping others and fighting injustice in a way we don't see today.
This film unearths Belafonte's significant contribution to society and indeed the civil rights movement in America and also to civil rights and social justice globally.
Wouldn't the world be a better place if kids got off the Playstations and stopped listening to their MP3s,so that they can realise the difference that they can actualy make to the world and that anything is possible.
A notable documentaryBy Tish2 (157 reviews) from London , 02 May 2013Sing Your Song is a notable and detailed documentary about the life and career of Harry Belafonte and his key role within the civil rights movement. It is also narrated by Belafonte, and although at times it is a little too hagiographic for my taste it is still a vital story, and one that deserves to be told. I was particularly fascinated to see the early footage and hear about how his career began, as well as finding out about his friendships with Paul Robeson, Sidney Poitier and Martin Luther King. He also set up his own film production company and it was intriguing to see clips from Odds Against Tomorrow and The World The Flesh and The Devil, both from 1959. It is a worthwhile personal and political documentary about one man who has spent his life fighting for many causes, and it is definitely recommended viewing.
five star filmBy redsquirrel23 (2 reviews) , 24 Jan 2013We evidently need more reviews from 10-year-olds. S/he grasped the guts of this deeply moving documentary. Harry is no angel (read his recent autobiography), like any human, but he never had to put himself on the line in the way he has. Watch this film, shout at the screen (some of the attitudes are simply unbelievable), laugh and weep. It's all here. Oh, and the music....
What a legendBy famaf (13 reviews) , 20 Jan 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Wow, what a legend Harry Belafonte is. It's worth watching this to gain an insight into the life of a man who hasn't deviated from his beliefs, despite many societal setbacks - and he's still working hard. Incredible role in 20th century history, whether fighting for civil rights in the US alongside Martin Luther King, or the abolition of apartheid in South Africa with Nelson Mandela. All power to you Harry!
Unsung HeroBy cl633 (7 reviews) , 31 Dec 2012This is a tale that MUST be told, I always admired Harry Belafonte the artist, but this is Harry Belafonte the HERO. It is as powerful as Schindler's List . . . Hotel Rwanda . . . . In My Country . . . . Thank you Mr Belafonte for having such courage and showing the world that prejudice and inequality of any type cannot be tolerated.
Long road to justiceBy a customer , 10 Nov 2012Thought provoking,made me think how far we had come but also how far we have to go, very interesting film.
