VASkins540 Posted June 17, 2008 Share Posted June 17, 2008 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... http://youtube.com/watch?v=X0okVWmMdhY&feature=related ...and a list of the cities it's being shown in: Mongol is now playing in theaters!
