Movie Info

When German knights invade Russia, Prince Alexander Nevsky (Nikolai Cherkasov) must rally his people to resist the formidable force. After the Teutonic soldiers take over an eastern Russian city, Alexander stages his stand at Novgorod, where a major battle is fought on the ice of frozen Lake Chudskoe. While Alexander leads his outnumbered troops, two of their number, Vasili (Nikolai Okhlopkov) and Gavrilo (Andrei Abrikosov), begin a contest of bravery to win the hand of a local maiden.

Audience Reviews for Aleksandr Nevskiy (Alexander Nevsky)

  • Feb 13, 2011
    Totally unrelevant to today and simply boring to watch. I'm not doubting the genius of Sergei Eisenstein but I just couldn't watch.

    Eisenstein's most propagandistic masterpiece, historically speaking, and first sound feature is an immortalized epic drama with well established ideologies, transferring the ideologies of the proletariat to a more idealized, yet violent context. The final battle sequence remains as the most influential and breathtaking ever put to celluloid; Nikolai Cherkasov gives brilliant early signs of spiritual doom before becoming Ivan the Terrible. A flawless work of art from wherever one may see it. 100/100

    Sergei is all about the framing, comrade. One message is clear: the Russians *really* hated the Germans! Interesting piece of cinema history/propaganda as this came out on the brink of WW II recounting the heroics of Alexander of Russia as he repelled the German invaders of 1242. The German helmets and armor designs are not far off from Orc garb, and one religious leader looks like Marty Feldman in "Young Frankenstein," cowled robe and all. The battle scenes are staggering in scope, using hundreds or maybe even a thousand people and horses. Unfortunately they drag on too long, as does the time spent on an uninteresting romantic triangle subplot.

    Illustrious portrait of a heroic Russian figure demented by a dutiful force in a spiritual defense.The film may display images of pious behavior but haste not,this is an epic drama and the people are who matter most,not ideologies.Magnificent score by Prokofiev.
