CAST: Natalja Petrova (Lyudmila), Valeri Kozinets (Ruslan), Vladimir Fedorov (Chernomor). 147 min. A vintage print with e-subtitles in Finnish by Tuulia Lehtonen. Viewed at Cinema Orion, Helsinki, 17 Jan 2009. - A soft Sovcolor print. - The launching film of our The Secret History of Soviet Cinema curated by Lauri Lehtinen and Antti Suonio. - I watched the start only. The film has the sense of the mythical grandeur of a fairy-tale epic, as did Ptushko's Ilya Muromez. It takes place in the mythical 9th-10th centuries of the old Russian principality of Kiev. - The performance was well attended. This film has a new fascination in the era of the new popularity of The Lord of the Rings.
