1953 Soviet Union, and Joseph Stalin has been in power for many years, with civilians and politicians in equal measure living in terror of his brutal, authoritarian regime, where one misjudged word could literally be fatal. Following his sudden death, a swift, farcical power struggle kicks in among his inner-circle, some of whom want positive change in the country, others more interested in power for themselves. Mostly, they are all desperately trying to stay alive. This dark, often violent comedy brilliantly uses humour to powerfully document the tyrannies of Stalin’s regime and demonstrate what can happen when power remains unchecked.
Very strong language, brief strong violence.
