Thousand times Nomad
30 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

One of greatest movies I've ever watched, along with Brave Heart and Gladiator...Movie is about real life of Kazakh nation in XIX century, about war between Jongars and Kazakhs, about a dozen of young fellas, who were brave and brilliant enough to go and fight against army which was very powerful, about decisiveness shown by Kazakhs, which about to lose the war against stronger Jongars, stronger in terms of army and technology, but no stronger in terms of spirit and belief. I think this movie will be especially interesting and exciting for those, who loves historic movies, movies about heroic people and actions. I wrote thousand times Nomad, because I believe it is really better and better many many times than Nomad, which has budget 3 times Myn Bala's budget, but was shot by non-professionals.
