Lenin: An Anatomy of a Legend Parts 1 & 2 Vladimir Ulyanov (Lenin) to this day is one of the most complex figures in Russian history. The author of the film, Vasily Pichul, analyses the myths and legends connected with the life of this great communist leader: from hagiographic films of the Soviet era to criminal songs and cartoons.
Who Shot Lenin?
There were numerous attempts to murder the Soviet empire’s idol. The most famous offense was committed by Fanny Kaplan, a halfblind and senile woman, who was appropriately deemed, ‘the blind sniper.’ Lenin’s real enemies were much closer to him, in the rows of his supporters.
