Meeting Gorbachev

Meeting Gorbachev With two functions already exhausted, full trailer this is the last opportunity to see the documentary that Herzog dedicated to the last president of the USSR. An atypical production for Herzog, fruit of the very figure he portrays.

Few contemporary artists know William Shakespeare as deeply as Branagh. The actor and director explores here the years of the retirement of the great Bardo, Quién te cantará those in which he left the theater and returned to his family delayed.

Werner Herzog returns to show his qualities as a documentary maker in Meeting Gorbachev, which will be seen on Tuesday at Bafici. The three encounters that the German director – who signs this film with André Singer, one of his usual collaborators – had with Mikhail Gorbachev are the backbone of this portrait of the eighth and last leader of the Soviet Union.

The friendly talks are going through a conventional and chronological way the life of the architect of Perestroika and Glásnost, the opening policies of the Soviet Union that in 1991 ended in its dissolution.

Together, they review aspects of Gorbachev’s intimate and political life, from his first meeting with his wife, Raisa, Office Uprising to his promotion into the Communist Party led by Nikita Khrushchev, which led to his proclamation as the youngest First Secretary of the Communist Party. history, in 1985.

Criticism of the film – which was screened in September 2018 at the Telluride and Toronto festivals – Midsommar was generally favorable, although one of the biggest objections to it was Herbog’s effusive displays of admiration for Gorbachev.

In an interview with Indiewire, the German director justified his attitude: “There are obvious reasons. Number one, is an outstanding figure, of enormous historical dimensions for the last part of the 20th century. I do not see anyone of his stature in that epoch of transcendental historical and political events that he, in a way, unleashed. ”

It was also pointed out that, in contrast to Herzog’s great documentaries such as Grizzly Man or IO The Cave of Forgotten Dreams, in this most of the time the camera remains static, capturing “talking heads”, that is, the testimonies of third parties ( like former Polish president Lech Walesa or former US treasury secretary James Baker) and Gorbachev himself.
