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.

Highly recommend. But I gave it the rating I did, because the film has clips from RT News. So, I removed one star.

An interesting and varied look into the nationalistic/pro-Putin movement in Russia. Is this what the future of the country will look like? An important and entertaining piece.

Well-researched documentary about an young, Russian journalist! She was totally enamored with Putin as the leader of Russia! Masha was a leader of the NASHI, youth national organization that supports Putin and the gov't! This is her experience with life in Russia, and personal experience with Putin and other top leaders. This is also about the experiences of the other more liberal leaders and journalists! What made her leave the cushy job and the cause she believed in? A documentary from the inside of Russia! I highly recommend it!
