The 7th century is the time of the Great Migration of the Peoples. Under the pressure of the invaders the proto-Bulgarian tribes of Khan Kubrat are forced to split in four parts in the hope that one would survive. For twenty long years Kubrat's youngest son Khan Asparoukh led his people across many foreign lands to find eventually a new homeland on the Balkan Peninsula and this time forever. The story is told by Byzantine Velisarius, a hostage with the Bulgarian who witnesses the whole of their difficult march. He sees the suffering of the people whom he already feels close to his heart and the personal drama of their Khan Asparoukh. In 681, in alliance with the local Slav tribes, the proto-Bulgarian deal a decisive blow on numerous Byzantine army, thus 13 centuries ago the foundations of the Bulgarian state and nation were laid down.Written by

I am pretty sure that a lot of people have never heard of the movies that my country Bulgaria have made."Aszparuh" is actually one the best Bulgarians movies.It was shown for the first time in 1981 when Bulgaria had its 1300 birthday. The three movies of the sequence are based on that part of the Bulgarian history when the country was founded and it not only shows the process itself but it also reveals the great personality of the first ruler of Bulgaria. In my opinion the actors managed to show all the efforts and all the drama that accompanied the foundation of Bulgaria.The epic battles that happened are depicted in a very interesting and spectacular way. This is a movie that has to be seen.
