Abai said it, Spaid cinemade it
16 April 2007 | by (Kazakhstan/USA) – See all my reviews

Every Kazakh middle-school student has read Abai's poem about eagle-hunting called "Kansonarda burkitshi shyghady angha". Some know the poem by heart and dream of going eagle-hunting. But not everyone understands Kazakh and Kazakhs. That's why "KIRAN over Mongolia" is a must-see movie. You will find yourself in Bayan Olgei, a region in Western Mongolia inhabited by Kazakh nomads. You will witness Kairatkhan the Eagle-hunter and his apprentice, Kuma, developing a brotherly relationship throughout the movie. Particularly astonishing is the eagerness and dedication with which Kairatkhan teaches Kuma. Kairatkhan even loses his cows, because of his commitment to teaching Kuma. Yet, he does not regret it. He only regrets that he does not have any brothers. Having no brothers in a nomadic environment is like living without an insurance in the West. A father of five and a husband, Kairatkhan makes his living by hunting. If you ran out of money and cannot find a job, see this movie. You will realize there are many other ways to be happy.
