The main character of the film is the first Russian president Boris Yeltsin. The second hero of this picture is the film director. He is talking with the president in the family circle.
The film An Example of Intonation isn't supposed to be edification for colleagues or the audience explaining how one should watch, speak or think or how to show something. "An Example" is meant to be experience, a trial and an attempt. I don't hide my affection for the protagonist, neither do I hide my foreboding that may not, of course, coincide with the real situation. If you managed to feel a Man in the leader of the Russian parliament, the person of big politics that fact will be enough for me.”
Aleksander Sokurov (from the director's summary)
