Storyline

Kievan Rus, late 10th century. After the death of his father, Svyatoslav I, ruler of Kievan Rus, the young Viking prince Vladimir of Novgorod (Danila Kozlovsky) is forced into exile across the frozen sea to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov), who has murdered his other brother Oleg (Kirill Pletnyov) and conquered the Viking territory of Kievan Rus. The old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) convinces Vladimir to assemble a Varangian armada, hoping to reconquer Novgorod from Yaropolk and ultimately face the mighty Byzantine forces. Written by Fenris

Absolute masterpiece
4 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. The story of the Kievan Russ, the Pagan Slavic cultural heritage, their links to the Vikings ; and their conflict with the nomandic horselords and influence of the Byzantine Empire. All covered in details.

Only stupid people and trolls would rate this movie badly.
