Russian spagetti western

Very funny, Russian version of "Lawrence of Arabia". The bigamist fantasy was genius.

A nice mix of adventure, commedy, surrealism and still many dramatic moments.

yeah it's an eastern movie having political aspects. it tells us that civil war was not only against 'whites' but fundamentalism and patriarchy as well. it's song 'vashe blogoradie' is wonderful too. btw, reviewers; please correct yourselves. it's a 'soviet' movie, not a 'russian' one.

Classic Russian "western", a total cult classic of Soviet cinema.

This is an incredibly popular Soviet movie and it's easy to see why, as it presents the Russian Civil War in central Asia in a straightforward way.

masterpiece, probably the best western ever made

I went to see this film 'cause:
1. I heard that before cosmonauts were sent on their mission they watched this film.
2. It was sold to me as Russian 'western'.
3. It was filmed on/around the Caspian sea (don't ask).
It is a brilliant film and rightfully has a place as a Russian cult film. Recommended!

Somehow mixes Indian Jones with a light comedy and tragedy. Colors Russians stereotypes for Central Asia to this day.

An excellent Russian film.

A wonderful action/comedy from Russia, inspired by American westerns. The irony is that it takes place in the Russian east.
