My interview with an American, who produced a movie that hit all Russians. Besides weather anomalies, the main shock of the beginning of the summer was the picture of American Director Oliver stone about Vladimir Putin.
Four parts, each 60 minutes, riveted to the screen an unprecedented number of viewers. The rating of the first two evenings of the show was even bigger than the Christmas show!
We communicate with the author which shocked the whole country documentary epic the Royal Suite “Pompadour” the oldest Parisian hotel Le Meurice. The stone arrived and the clock communicates with local journalists because of a documentary story about the Russian President going to surprise here. Although in France, the homeland of his mother, the Director and without that it is often.
– After this unprecedented success, you may apply for Russian citizenship!
– No, I am a patriot and love America.
But French passport you still have?
– So, just in case.
– Your film shocked all of Russia. For the first time in the history of Vladimir Putin talked about his grandchildren.
Really?! You never know what will be the news. For me personally, was the discovery that in America, nobody knows what’s in your President.
– In a global sense, you understand after a conversation with the Russian leader?
– The world is on the brink of nuclear war, but Putin, I am sure, will not be the first to press the button.
The moments that especially struck you at these meetings?
Mr. Putin is a cautious man that trained him. All 20 hours of conversation he never went to the toilet, I respect that. He knows the measure of all, do not drink too much water, just perfect.
12 quotes of the President about the parents, perestroika, Yeltsin, and women
His appearance was immaculately. When I watch the recording, you see that my hair is sticking out in all directions. Americans would say that I like the bear Baloo from “the jungle Book” and he in the tiger Shere Khan. We laughed about it.
One of the key questions that I asked the President (for some reason I do not find it important): “How much do you sleep?” He said that he sleeps 6-7 hours. To maintain such a schedule requires discipline. You can’t go to the party, can’t have fun in the same way that ordinary people. You from all that refuse, become a monk. Because at any moment something can happen. And on the question in the middle of the night will be only 15 minutes. And it is very hard work.
I was a little boy when Ronald Reagan said on the radio that in 15 minutes will start bombing the Soviet Union. I stood and cried on the street because I was hoping that after 15 minutes my life will be interrupted. It was indeed a very scary situation, and I asked Vladimir Putin how he copes with all this for 16 years!
