Storyline

About the last days of Leonid Brezhnev, the Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. He is sick and depressed, but he is still trying to enjoy some pleasures of life. He is hunting, eating, and sleeping a lot. While awake, he is recalling his life and his career. Most depressing are his painful thoughts about his treason against Khrushchev, who promoted Brezhnev to the top. Other senile members of the Politbureau, are nervous about the choice of a successor. Andropov anxiously interrogates the doctor about Brezhnev's imminent death. He asks, "How soon?". Written by Steve Shelokhonov

Brezhnev: The Man You Didn't Know
25 June 2005 | by (Russia.) – See all my reviews

Though Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev was a popular character of Russian anecdotes, I could never imagine that one day we will see a sad comedy/drama about the great Generalniy Sekretar Partii. Yes, I really believe that the four episode mini series Brezhnev is more of a comedy than a drama. We see the leader of the greatest country in world do everything expect maybe... going to the toilet. His everyday life is shown with love and wit.

The film is original in showing us not only Brezhnev in his last weeks on planet Earth but also by telling us the story of a man who, out of nobody, became the person who ruled Soviet Union for some 17 years. But comedy or not, the film is sad: who ruled Soviet Union? An old, sick man who had to go on retirement some five years ago.

Nevertheless, the film is great.
