This historical film takes viewers to the 18th century and tells the story of the creation of the monument to Peter the First, which, thanks to Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin’s poem, is known as the “Bronze Horseman”. At the invitation of Empress Catherine the Second, the sculptor Etienne Maurice Falcone comes from France to make a monument. Thanks to the meticulous work and hard creative search of the artist, the monument becomes not only a work of art, but one of the symbols of Russia.
