The Candidate


Watch The Candidate (1980)

In 1980 Franz Josef Strauss and Helmut Schmidt applied for the office of government of the Federal Republic of Germany. To prevent this, the first German writer Garde staged the episode to reveal the candidate - mainly by quoting the speeches he made publicly during his political career.

For me The Candidate - was the biggest surprise of the year 1980. The term 'Best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest movie ever made. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. The Candidate is the only movie I saw full, more than once. Special effects, action and characters give this high rating. It doesn't happen often, but after watching The Candidate, I was moved inside. Don't waste your time, click on play button and watch....
