Editorial Reviews

Putin's Kiss portrays contemporary life in Russia through the coming-of-age story of Masha, a middle-class Russian girl and a member of Nashi, a nominally ''anti-fascist'' movement whose members are expected to pledge their unswerving support to Vladimir Putin and all his policies. Extremely ambitious, the young Masha quickly rises to the top of Nashi, and is rewarded for her loyalty with an apartment, a car and frequent television appearances as a Nashi spokesperson, while attending Moscow State University. She begins to question her involvement with Nashi when she learns that a radical faction within the organization is supposedly responsible for attacks against political dissidents, and she finds herself faced with a very real dilemma when she befriends a group of journalists critical of Putin's government, one of whom is Oleg Kashin. When Oleg becomes the victim of a violent attack and barely makes it out of the hospital alive, Masha realizes that she must take a stand. In Russian with English subtitles.

This documentary shows a great behind the scenes look at the NASHI youth movement in Russia that is not shown by the Russian ordained media. In many ways the NASHI youth movement is comparable to the Hitler youth movement in pre-WWII Germany, demonizing any who oppose the party line and intimidating them with beatings, prison and death for the simple crime of opposing their party line.

Though the documentary itself is average in quality, I believe people 20 years from now will look back at it in shock of how Russian youth followed the same disastrous path the youth of Germany followed in the 1930's.

This is a good take on a very special area outside of Moscow and the propaganda machine used in Russia.

You have to be blind to not see, that or emotional damaged. The haunting quote is 'too old before your time.' or an old young man or woman as in the cynicism...It's not surprising, it's sad actually. This was put together fairly well, the information was good, the points of view were history on repeat, and Masha Drokova poor dear not sure how she is doing now...It was above all sad and disheartening to be sure...

Most of us have heard of the Hitler Youth movement and probably never thought that a major government would try to replicate such an organization in our lifetimes. "Putin's Kiss" shows how very senior members of the Putin Government have built a youth organization that looks a lot too much like the Hitler Youth movement for my liking, complete with banners and stage managed political "demonstrations". It also shows how such an organization can evolve in plain sight with seemingly innocent goals but be used to propagandize, to oppress and to punish any form of descent. It is a scary movie that has significant implications for America today.

Eerily similar to the BDM and Hitler Youth movements during the times of the NAZIS...It gets slow at times but it is insightful how the youth are important tools for enslaving the people...

This was very eye-opening. I am very disappointed that Putin is behind such a weak tactic to brainwash the youth in such a way they are akin to little Nazi youths. I really hope these misguided youth open their eyes. I understand they want to have justice, but their justice went from noble to dictatorial.
