Ruslan and Ludmila / Rousslan et Ludmilla / Ruslan i Lyudmila / Руслан и Людмила (1972) 2 x DVD9 RUSCICO
The film is based on the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin’s poem of the same name, which happens to be one of the most poetic and beautiful Russian fairy tales.
In the midst of the wedding party of Prince Ruslan and Ludmila, daughter of a Kievan Prince, the girl was kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Chernomor. Ludmila’s father summoned for help all the mighty warriors and heroes he knew in his princedom. But only Ruslan, after a fierce fight, succeeded in winning over Chernomor by cutting off the dwarf’s beard wherein his strength lay. Beautifully costumed, the film abounds in excellently staged stunts and masterfully photographed battle scenes.
