Storyline

Synopsis: In 651 C.E. Khan Kubrat died and the Khazars accelerated their raids upon Great Bulgaria. His five sons split the Bulgarian tribe and each led his to find new land where they could live in peace. Khan Asparukh, the youngest son, went west and, after an arduous journey lasting for years, southward across the River Danube, into Moesia. In 680-81, in alliance with the Slavs, he inflicted tunning defeats on the Roman legions and forced the Byzantine Empire to recognize the formation of the new state of Bulgaria in the lands where it still exists today. A spectacular epic, "Khan Asparukh" was made to celebrate the 1,300th anniversary of the founding of Bulgaria. This edited version compresses the three-part film from almost 6 hours to 95 minutes. Sumptuously filmed, with over 50,000 extras, the film narrates the history of these momentous events, from the fall of Great Bulgaria in the Asian steppes, through Asparukh's perilous trek west, and the decisive battles with the ...

A true masterpiece
25 July 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

After watching 10 minutes of it you already want to know whats gonna happen next. This is the best Bulgarian movie i have seen so far. It has everything in it. Romance, Drama and action. Although its old and its Bulgarian it does not look any different from any American movie in the 80s. As i said this a true masterpiece. The movie takes you back in 651 when the great khan Kubrat ruled and his son Asparuh becomes the khan after Kubrat dies. It's Asparuh's turn to guide his people to the freedom and find a new peacefull land to live on. There is a scene where you can see 50,000 soldiers. They are real bulgarians hired 50,00 people for the movie. Amazing!!! Highly recommended. You must watch if you find it.
