This film is banned in Russia, police raided and stopped the film being shown in Moscow.
Once again Armando Iannucci has produced an extremely funny satirical political comedy. In 1953 Joseph Stalin, collapses unexpectedly and dies, what follows is the scheming of the Council of Ministers as they scramble to maintain order and fight for power.  Although funny we see the vicious violent undertone of Russian politics. My favourite is Field Marshall Zhukov (Jason Issacs with Yorkshire accent) he was the only man Stalin was a little afraid of. Superb cast, lots of fun.
