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

28 January 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is a puzzle. useful for the memories about a period from Soviet history and for discover a character in his basic traces. a film who remains a testimony, more than artistic creation. because the pieces of film, precise fresco about a life, is picture of an old man fragility but , in more measure, about fragility of a system. a film like a tale. about people and crisis, dreams and power circle. a special movie for the slices of silence. who was Brezhnew has different answer for each viewer. the movie builds only questions and gives clues for feel the temperature of situations. for me, the Brezhnev era is a part of my life. so, this series represents an useful exercise. for a good acting and admirable recreation of atmosphere. as interesting support of memories and sketch for understand the past.
