Movie Info

Lowly Mongolian trapper Bair (Valery Inkijinoff), shunned by his fellow trappers for fighting with a trader, flees his trading post and joins the Soviet partisans trying to oust the occupying British forces. After Bair is captured and shot by the British, they find an amulet on him suggesting he is descended from Genghis Khan. The soldiers nurse Bair back to health and use him to establish a puppet government, not realizing their plan will backfire when the puppet breaks his strings.

Critic Reviews for Potomok Chingis-Khana (Storm over Asia) (The Heir to Genghis Khan)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • One of the silliest of films.

    July 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Pudovkin's strict, building block editing, proficient as it is, tends to cramp the film's flow and suggestive space.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • Excellent photography and sterling work by the eminently suitable cast are the conspicuous assets of Vsevolod Pudovkin's silent cinematic contribution.

    March 25, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • By focusing on non-white characters, Pudovkin also dismisses the inherent racism with which such cultures were viewed at the time, a move that seems revolutionary in and of itself.

    April 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Like all three entries in the Bolshevik trilogy, Storm over Asia may make you want to take up arms yourself and overthrow the bloated status quo.

    April 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An exciting film, which beats any American audience-film. It makes the boasted dramatic technique of America appear a schoolboy's exercise.

    I absolutely loved this picture. The story, the cinematography, the editing and the list keeps on going, everything is well-made. (I wont get too much into it because it is a very complex film.)
