Unique material but disappointing end the end
As a person with general knowledge of Russian and Putin is was very interested to see some unique footage from the start of Putin his reign. It was interesting to see a young Putin come to power. But since the material was filmed as part of a PR-video it didn't really contain very critical questions. Even though this is understandable because nobody knew how things would turn out (Putin being in power for more or less 18 years). For me the documentary also missed more explanation about what exactly was going. It was a fly on the wall type of film but it didn't manage to be much more than that. If it makes one thing clear though it is the excellent understanding of Putin and his helpers that PR and (public) image are key to getting power and maintaining it.
