The President is the story of a dictator of an imaginary country in the Caucasus, who is forced to escape following a coup d'état, and begins a journey to discover his country in the company of his five-year-old grandson. The two travel across the lands that the President once governed. Now, disguised as a street musician to avoid being recognized, the former dictator comes into contact with his people, which he comes to know from a different point of view. Written by AnonymousB

Did You Know?


When the president allows his grandson to command that the lights in neighborhoods surrounding their headquarters be deactivated at night time, not only do lights wired to the power grid go dark but also the headlights of motor vehicles which continue moving along as though their operators are not phased in the slightest by reduced visibility. Only the discharge of an electromagnetic pulse could potentially have such an effect, yet no reference is made such a methodology. See more »

a dictator . his fall. and beginning of a way. one of films who could be defined as puzzle of memories. because the run, the fear, the dialogues, the transformation and the last scene are pieces from a wise manner to reflect reality on screen who has few brilliant examples in Eastern films. not exactly a national school but a great cinematography. slices from Repetance of Abuladze or Tarkovsky's universe, splendid exploration of detail, the air who becomes material and the scene of home return, the beach and the arguments of young man, the fight with the past, in words, looks and intentions, each, all define a film who could be real discovered in its profound sense - the artistic side is only one from them - for the public who preserves in his personal past slices from a dictatorship.
