My first Mongolian film
21 December 2000 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

And I hope it won't be the last. It was interesting to get a glimpse of Mongolia, a glimpse of life hundreds of years ago and to see Genghis Khan through Mongolian eyes. The film looked at his personal life and the things that drove him to become who he ultimately became.

Now I'd like to have a glimpse of contemporary Mongolia.
