It is one of my favorite Soviet movies. Unusual combination of good actors, nice music and songs, and some mystical spirit turn a relatively simple plot a nice movie to see again and again. It is hard to imagine a movie, which brought together people from very different walks of life such as great Russian actors Durov and Jursky, a famous stunt man and circus actor Kantemirov, and a composer/singer Polad Bul' Bul Ogly. But it was done and it appears to be great. Add to it nice mountain scenery, interesting historical context, and really great songs.
