Now 87 and battling illness, the visionary former General Secretary of the U.S.S.R. Mikhail Gorbachev has mellowed and slowed down, while still pushing towards his goals. As on-screen interviewer, Herzog does not disguise his affection, celebrating Gorbachev’s three remarkable accomplishments: negotiations with the U.S. to reduce nuclear weapons; cessation of Soviet control of Eastern Europe and the reunification of Germany; and the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc.
