The President

National Review of ‘The President’

An Iranian film instructs the modern world. By Armond White

Its story of a despot (Mikheil Gomiashvili) caught in the midst of a revolution, who escapes his country’s futuristically designed capital city to traverse the underdeveloped countryside with his cosseted grandson (Dachi Orvelashvili) in tow, surprises all anti-fascist expectations. Makhmalbaf looks at brotherhood by satirizing the highhanded excesses of nationhood.

Praised as “striking” and “beautifully shot” by The Hollywood Reporter and warmly received by film critics following its UK release, this 2013 TIFF and 2014 EFM festival selection is set to open theatrically in NY this fall. Directed by Edgar Reitz and featuring a special appearance by acclaimed director Werner Herzog who portrays the great humanitarian scientist Alexander von Humboldt, Home From Home: Chronicle of a vision of a Vision is Reitz’ capstone achievement following the success of his earlier Heimat television series the director started in 1984. Home From Home is a heart-wrenching tale about the plight of mid-19th century Hunsrück villagers who endure a life of hardship in a poor rural village, many of whom take great risks to emigrate to South America in search of a better life.
