Plot synopsis
The second film by Sokurov featuring Boris Eltsin as the principal character. Now he is the President of Russia, invested with power, the man, bearing the full responsibility for the destinies of his distant compatriots as well as his closest kin and friends. Conducting a conversation with him among the members of his family, the filmmaker (second character of this film) manages to reveal his interlocutor's vulnerability and anguish — features that are “human, too human”.
