Great movie-making, best opera realization on screen! Fun!
I've never had so much high-brow fun watching a movie. More operas should be made into movies. This was at its earthy best, and the Borodin music was just so right for story of more primitive times. It was sort of like a spaghetti western set to music, and I mean that in a good way. Think what some of the opera-composing greats could have done with "A Fistful Of Dollars" and you have some of the feel of this spectacle, though of course the story was far different. The acting wasn't all that great, but that isn't the most important aspect of an opera, even one put on film. The music, the passion, the spectacle, those are what I look for. I mean, this had Mongol hordes in full regalia, horses, horses and more horses. Much better than seeing it on a stage. This was a lot of fun to watch.
