Great documentary, involving.
19 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

A documentary about the so called "Chechen Mafia Don" Khozh-Akhmed Nukhaev narrated mostly by himself as the camera follows him throughout the film. Very interesting in the point of his belief from a very young age in the resistance of Russian rule. From a labourer loading rail cars to the security service defense leader of Chechnya. An amazing rise to a very powerful position, a protector of all Chechnyans, and seemingly so, both rich and poor, unlike most people in power who seem to only protect their own. It's a deeper sense of belonging, togetherness, a rebel state, refusing outside rule and rebuilding their country and bombed, wasteland-like cities.
