A great and authentic, powerful film about the fall of a dictator - The President review by PV

Spoiler Alert
05/03/2017

This is the first Georgian film I have ever seen - and I was very much impressed with it.

It basically shows the sudden fall of a dictator, like so many in Eastern Europe (and soon North Korea, I think, and Zimbabwe). The sense of bafflement and bewilderment is stark and accurate.

True, the second half of the film drags a bit and is overlong (longer than the stated time on the disc sleeve too, I believe). But that is a minor quibble.

This is a great movie.

4.5 stars rounded up to 5.

I like watching all Russian and east Russian movies and I found this movie well directed and acted. A simple story about a dictator's fall from power and how he tried to escape execution. the little boy also played his role of grand son superbly.

A very good movie to watch.

I rate this movie all 4.5 stars out of five.
