Storyline

The films hero is a metal worker named Ignat who is as strong and tough as the steel that his sprawling factory produces in the Ural Mountains. Its a great cheerless environment; life is arduous and dangerous; conditions at the plant are nearly subhuman. Almost every day brings a new crisis at the factory and Ignat is called upon to advert yet another potential disaster. The only excitement in the grimy industrial town is provided by robbing a train at gunpoint or stealing sheep from the Bashkiri tribe. The most renowned diversion, however, is the annual fist fight between the strongest metal worker and the strongest miner from the region. Against his better judgment, but with the support of his co-workers, Ignat decides to take part in this perilous venture.

Heroic duel in a living steam engine
13 January 2008 | by gy-kaszaSee all my reviews

A very strong movie of some mortals fighting for survival in a vast cast-iron factory (which seems to be an organic and living entity). The genre is something of a steam-punk drama. Although the introduction page says "Plot Keywords: ironic", in my opinion it is more like grotesque, and far from ironic. This is a mannish, brute film, having such a gravity that won't let you rest for a second. I saw this movie ten years ago and I still have a vivid memory of it. In spite of the soberly dry presentation, I wouldn't call it an art movie. It is really a pity that didn't make it's way to the broader public. Maybe a bit arguable comparison, but Sin City was something like that later - strong visuals, masculine perspective, harsh story driving. Of course Sin City is actually a film noire, not like Children of the Iron God. I recommend this movie for that few lucky people who have the rare chance to get a copy of it or see it in a cult movie somewhere.
