Storyline

The film is based on the play "Drakon", written by Yevgeni Shvarts in 1943, in Leningrad during WWII. Dragon (Yankovsky) is a bloody dictator, who kills every opponent. People live hopelessly, until Lancelot (Abdulov) comes to save the beautiful Elsa. Lancelot can only win, if all people become free from fear, that is feeding the Dragon's power. Dragon's multiple personalities, ranging from a "dragon" to a "samurai" to a "Nazi", scare the hell out of all people, except Lancelot. Finally Dragon drops all his masks, to become the most dangerous of his incarnations - "himself". And the battle begins. Written by Steve Shelokhonov

The Dragon: [Lancelot sees children running after a dragon-like kite. The kite is pulled by the reincarnated Dragon, and Dragon is facing him and poses a silent question] So... passer-by, now everything starts again?
The Dragon: [Silence, then the Dragon speaks aloud] Maybe, not now... There are children, after all.
Lancelot: [looking over the scene] No. Now.
The Dragon: [smiling to the children] Well then... Now it will start... The most interesting part.

Gorgeus and forgotten movie
28 January 2007 | by (Serbia and Montenegro, Belgrade) – See all my reviews

A brilliant movie, like most of Russian's movies. Based on the play "Kill the Dragon", by Evgeni Schwartz, it is mostly like theater, with strong accent on the characters, the plot, the acting.

Director has not waisted his time and talent on special effects and such a marginal things. "Ubit drakona" is a beautiful story about freedom, and human disability to live freely; about beauty, nobility, and loneliness of beautiful and noble creatures in the world. It is done in the best manner of Russian literature, with strong influence of novels of Dostoevski, with plenty of dialogs freedom, love, violence, but, also, with brilliantly done scenes of duels, balls, and dialogs in the classical manner of Shakespeare.
