There are things that can only afford to the twilight of their years. Like ripe fruit, they are amazing admire its depth and weight. Venerable filmmaker Werner Herzog does not hurry, no flickering ubiquitous manners of personnel, conducts a quiet conversation with Mikhail Gorbachev — face of an era. They are equal, carefully choose the tone, choose the right words to understand each other. They don't need to comprehend history and its importance, it is clear that both of them, the people of one generation just wants to sit next to each other, to talk without the hustle and bustle. Gorbachev and thirty years ago, is not afraid to do a long pause, now and certainly not afraid. Every word weight with a nice heavy dictionary, each gives an idea of that what works is a political story. Now that the past years were the background — visible efforts as a separate personality, and surrounding this is personality of people. Someone was an upstart, and someone had to take responsibility for yourself, to become a household name, "the destroyer" Empire. Although that this Empire, if it possible to destroy the alone?

An old man, a survivor of most of his colleagues and opponents, the President is already non-existent countries, is an embodiment of power and gravity solutions. And opposite him sits and makes his film a real master, able to capture the elusive movement of time. They understand each other, they are confidential conversation devoid of ambition and any insincerity that we see the value of their interaction with confidence. Many frames will be valuable to those who was born after such important events as rebuild the end of the cold war.
