Mongol (film)


Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen this yet?

I just saw the trailer for the first time earlier today and was impressed. It's a foreign film co-produced by German, Russian, Mongolian, and Kazakh companies loosely based on Genghis Khan's early life and rise to power. It was initially released in Russia last fall and has since swept the Nika Awards (the Russian equivalent to the Oscars) and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film last year. Most of the reviews I've read have been positive, a handful even compared it to David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia (Braveheart was suggested a few times as well).

It premiered in the US on the 8th and is now being shown in select theaters.

Here's the trailer...

I wonder how much of this is going to be fiction and how much fact?

Either way, it appears to be a beautiful movie from the trailer scenes.

From what I've read the director tried to keep it fairly accurate, but because the Mongols kept relatively few written accounts of their history there was a lot of room for artistic liberties.
