“Lenin has returned from exile” – was a comment on Russian social media, as Sergey Udaltsov was released yesterday after 4 1/2 years in prison camp in the Tambov – region in Russia. Udaltsov was one of the most strictly sentenced protesters against the – for the benefit of Putin – arranged presidential elections in Russia *) 2012.

The so-called “Bolotnaya case“.

The film “Interview with Putin” is no exception.

While talking with the Russian president, either in the dacha in Novo-Ogarevo or in the Kremlin Palace painted halls, or in the Sochi residence, Stone does not only picture Putin, but he also leave space for different workstations – a microphone on a long stick, camera movements, co-workers  trying not to end up in the camera , and other episodes from the recording process.
