Legend of the Wizard
11 May 2014 | by Dmitri BatuevSee all my reviews

Yuri Ilienko creative peak . Very bright , impressive and poetic film . It is difficult to call it historic , because the crumbs of our fragmentary knowledge of that period did not allow even speak with certainty about whether it was Olga herself . No history , but there is a legend and a beautiful and fabulous, and the grim and brutal at the same time . Epic characters come to life in the poem and Ilienko long remain in our memory , like make us believe in the greatness of Olga and Svyatoslav firmness and wisdom of Vladimir . Truthfully and sincerely shown in the film all the contradictions of the time, the bloody feuds squabbles irreconcilable clash of paganism and Christianity , and , on this background , the emergence of Great Russia as a state. Great friend and colleague Parajanov , with whom he made ​​" Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors " Ilienko its brightest works "White Bird with Black Mark ", " Forest Song . Mavka "and" The Legend of Princess Olga "continues and lifts to unprecedented heights genre epic and poetic cinema .
