The outstanding love movie without a single kiss.
27 April 2004 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I had visited Mongolia several years earlier than I watched this film. Watching it, I found natural climate of the difficult daily-life of Mongolian - straightforward and generous people. The beauty of Mongolian grassland, poverty of small villages and daily problems were shown as it I had remembered - this reality is one of reasons one should see this movie.

However, the most striking feature of the film is the way in which love was showing. In this relatively long movie (almost 2 hours), we cannot find any "love scenes" characteristic for the point of view of the western cinematography. Paradoxically, I am convinced this is the greatest love-film I have ever seen. It shows how love appears, grows, how life can turn out to be hard when still loving, and how it can survive despite severe circumstances.
