The bridge over the abyss.

A reflection film on the key stages of the recent history of Russia. Helmsmen, who led the country in the days of destiny.



After 1917, at the helm of power in Russia stood at a different time, Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin and Medvedev. Together they ruled the country less than one hundred years. Historically, the term miserable, but hardly any other country in the world during that period has survived so many internal and external wars, reform turns in the development and setbacks of the past. Russia — a country which is sometimes horror, sometimes with interest the world is watching, trying to understand it. All the more important for us to understand ourselves: what is happening to us? Why arrival of each new leader is almost equal to the change of regime? Knowledge of history — a good way to avoid repeating the same mistakes. The events that took place with the people and the country can never be clear, indisputable estimates. People who lived in the era of Stalin, sometimes have this time completely opposite views. And each of these views is important. Our time, too, will soon be history. The film "The Bridge over the abyss" — a story about the Russian past twenty years. A prerequisite to the events of 1991 was the arrival into power of Mikhail Gorbachev. The society began restructuring, which resulted in the split of the country. You can argue — could the end of Gorbachev’s rule otherwise, what he made mistakes, what guided by taking certain decisions, whether expressed unpardonable hesitation, giving his opponents inside the country and in the international arena? Under the new 1992, Gorbachev resigned as president. Under the new 2000 almost did the same, Boris Yeltsin, to represent the country of his successor. And between these two events was 8 years — two of Yeltsin‘s presidential term. Gorbachev and Yeltsin — two of our first President — almost polar opposites. But, alas, he and the other could not take the country out of the crisis, and the social and economic results of the government, many of these leaders will be called terrible. That’s the beginning of the 21st century, the country met in the next crisis. And just at that time, it was headed by a new leader. What was Putin’s two terms of presidency and four years as chairman of the government, will also be subject to scrutiny in the film. "The bridge over the abyss" results are different, sometimes diametrically opposite points of view, the picture does not avoid the pain points, calls for a debate. By the way, one of those who expressed their views on the issues discussed, was Putin himself.
