Mongol ()

directed by
featuring Tadanobu Asano, Sun Hong-Lei, Khulan Chuluun, Odnyam Odsuren, Amarbold Yuvinbayar

Based on the controversial writings of Russian historian Lev Gumilyov, director Sergei Bodrov's look at the early years in the life of the Mongol conqueror stars Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano as Temudgin (as he was then known), Honglei Sun as Mongol chieftain Jamukha, who was both Temudgin's close friend and mortal enemy, and newcomer Khulan Chuluun as his wife, Borte. Born in the year 1162, Temudgen's childhood was marred by tragedy and peril. But a great battle would seal Temudgen's fate forever, and though history often paints him as a brute, the truth is much more complex. Few historians make mention of the role Temudgen's wife, Borte, played in advising her husband and elevating him to greatness. With Borte by his side, Temudgen would rise to become a fearless visionary whose legacy would still prove potent enough to stir controversy centuries after his death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis

good movie

by ThistleFox on Apr 22, 2010

It's not designed to conform to the usual USA movie watcher, so keep your perspective open to the difference in culture and I think you will enjoy this as much as we did...which we enjoyed it a lot! I'm glad we added it to our movie library!
