“As a visual spectacle, it is all but overwhelming, putting to shame some of the recent historical epics from Hollywood.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Award-winning filmmaker Sergei Bodrov (“Prisoner of the Mountains”) illuminates the life and legend of Genghis Khan in this stunning historical epic, MONGOL. Based on leading scholarly accounts and written by Bodrov and Arif Aliyev, MONGOL delves into the dramatic and harrowing early years of the ruler who was born as Temudgin in 1162. As it follows Temudgin from his perilous childhood to the battle that sealed his destiny, the film paints a multidimensional portrait of the future conqueror. MONGOL shows us the making of an extraordinary man, and the foundation on which so much of his greatness rested.
Filmed in the very lands that gave birth to Genghis Khan, MONGOL transports us back to a distant and exotic period in world history; to a nomad’s landscape of endless space, climatic extremes and ever-present danger. Masterfully blending action and emotion against some of the most arresting terrain on earth, Bodrov delivers an exciting and awe-inspiring tale of survival and triumph, and a love story for the ages.
