The Scythian

Epic period films set in long ago times when men fought, women obeyed, and animals cowered in fear of being eaten, ridden, or worn are something of a rarity these days. Hollywood certainly isn’t churning them out, but it should surprise no one that Russia has the sub-genre Gone Are the Days covered. The Scythian is as earthy an action film as you could hope for as a man fights for his family across rough and muddy landscapes and alongside an enemy who wants him dead.

Central Eurasia is a land in dwindling chaos as a new regime takes control of the land and chokes out pagan dissenters. The once-majestic and feared Scythians have been reduced in number and forced to exist as thieves, murderers, and wanderers. When skilled members of the fading Niet Schieten tribe abduct a woman and newborn belonging to the Russian prince’s right-hand soldier Lyutobor (Aleksey Faddeev) the warrior is forced into a quest both of rescue and revenge. He finds an unlikely and untrustworthy ally of sorts in Marten (Aleksandr Kuznetsov), one of the Scythian assassins who took part in the abduction before being left behind, and together they seek the truth behind the vile act that brought them together.

Blood and testosterone spill in equal measure in The Scythian, Brother of the Year and neither is in vain as the resulting film feels like a big, brawny adventure from the 80s/90s — and that’s a not a bad thing. There’s a nod to history in its story of the Christian onslaught across the landscape and the fate of those who don’t get in line with the one god policy, but director/co-writer Rustam Mosafir is most interested in delivering an epic action film where muscle, steel, and princely power reign supreme.
