Plot Outline:

In this first part of the two-part life of Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible) we explore his early days after he crowns himself Tsar of Russia and beings cultivating his power and reclaiming lost territory. From various campaigns to an illness that nearly takes his life to threats from the aristocracy and his own family - he deftly plays his hand to keep his title. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

As a grand retelling of Ivan the Terrible's biography, Eisenstein masterfully combines symbolism, powerful performances, and some clever visual trickery into an arresting tale of revenge and power struggle. The film, despite its age, works well because of Eisenstein's understanding of using visuals to tell a commanding story.
