ILYA MUROMETS / LE GEANT DES STEPPES (LE PREUX LLYA DE MOUROM)/ ILJA MUROMEZ / ИЛЬЯ МУРОМЕЦ
The film is based on Russian epic tales about the famous hero embodying the best character traits of the Russian people.
Ilya Muromets, like Dobrynia Nikitich and Alyosha Popovich, is a favorite character of Russian folklore.
Ilya Muromets is a heroic warrior who succeeded in protecting the Russian land from evil enemies, defeating their thousands-strong army. He saved Russia from various monsters, such as Nightingale the Robber and Gorynych the Serpent.
This was the first Soviet wide-screen motion picture. Participating in the shooting were 106, 000 soldiers-extras and 11, 000 horses – the record numbers in the history of world cinema (as documented in Patrick Robertson’s “The New Guinness Book of Movie Records”, published in 1993).
