The documentary runs a little a little over two hours and offers a behind the scenes look at Vaclav Havel as president of the Czech Republic. Prague Radio offered a review of the documentary Citizen Havel on their website in 2008. An excerpt outlines the substance of this important work:
"For more than a decade, from autumn 1992, when Václav Havel was deciding whether to run for the post of Czech president, to January 2003, when he left Prague Castle for the last time, director Pavel Koutecký followed the president everywhere he went. He shot hours and hours of footage, footage that reveals everything from picking his way through Machiavellian post-election negotiations to giving restaurant tips to the Rolling Stones."
