Movie Summary"Armed with a sword and a magic potion, a simple farmer defends his homeland from Khalin and his fierce, invading Tugars. A Russian fairytale." Ilya is a cripple without the use of his legs. When he aids some weary travellers, they surprise him by giving him a potion that restores his legs. He immediately becomes powerful and sets off to prove himself to his King. "Ukraine-born filmmaker Ptushko was noted as an accomplished creator of celluloid fables designed especially for children. However, anyone between the ages of eight and 108 will relish this sweeping spectacular which depicts the courage of Ilya Morometz, a legendary Russian hero of the Middle Ages. Once upon a time, there was a happy and peaceful kingdom of golden lakes and rolling hills and fertile soil. A plundering tribe headed by the vicious Kalin has ravaged the land, pillaging village after village and leaving only desolation and despair. Kalin is a warlord whose brutality is "unmatched in history." Only one person can defy him: a brawny farmer and man of the people who is "stout of heart and brave of spirit," and who is known as Ilya Morometz. With magic sword in hand Ilya sets off down "the road that leads to death" in his quest to topple Kalin. Two of the most terrifying obstacles he must overcome are a wind demon and a flying three-headed fire-dragon. Ilya also will come into contact with the "Little Falcon," a fearless young warrior who was kidnapped from his village as a child and raised by Kalin to be Ilyas enemy. Little does Ilya know that "The Falcon" is none other than his very own son! This exceptional film is crammed with epic battle scenes and special effects that are nothing short of magical." VIEWER COMMENT: "This is the story of Ilya Morometz. Ilya's an alright guy, but his legs won't work for some reason. He can only watch helplessly while his beloved country is plundered by a Mongolian race known as the Tugars. Then, one day, his life is changed forever. Some strangers visit his house and give him a special kind of dew to drink that restores his legs to full health once again. Ilya celebrates by rooting up large tree stumps and throwing them off a cliff. He tells his parents he'd like to work on the farm again but he has to stop those dog gone Tugars first. So Ilya sets out to destroy all the Tugars. After mounting his mighty steed, Chestnut Gray, he neglects the roads that lead to riches and a wife, and instead sets out on the road that leads to death. He defeats a wind demon and takes the demon back to the prince of his land. The prince gives Ilya a ring for conquering the demon, and so Ilya is on the prince's good side. But not for long. You see, there are traitors in the palace whose loyalty is with the Tugars. They tell the prince horrible lies about Ilya and the prince is...well...kind of gullible. He orders Ilya to be locked in a dungeon, but to be fed well. The sneaky traitors disobey the prince and won't even give Ilya a scrap of food. Ilya only survives with the help of a magic blanket his wife made for him. It has a picture of a tree on it that somehow is able to grow real fruit. It's a miracle! When the traitors are discovered and Ilya is freed from prison, he comes up with a very complicated plan to stop the Tugars. To this day I still have no idea what Ilya's plan was. I guess it doesn't really matter though. He and his men kill the three-headed dragon of the Tugars and save the kingdom of the prince. The prince invites Ilya to become a noble or something, but Ilya declines and tells the prince to accept his son as a noble instead. I believe the last line of the film is, "We shall be proud to have with us the son of Ilya Morometz!" Awesome movie."
