Vassily Buslayev

1982 NR

Based on the epic Russian poem, this fantastic, engrossing spectacle tells the tale of Russian hero Vassily Buslayev, who rose heroically to defend the freedom and independence of his people. When the threat of advancing enemy hordes looms over Novogorad, the townspeople beg Vassily to defend their home and hearth -- and he does, with results that exceed everyone's wildest expectations.
