Beautiful and strange
24 July 2002 | by Starmist3See all my reviews

'A Mongolian Tale' is a compelling movie, both because of its unusual setting in Mongolia and its melancholy love story. The Mongolian language is interesting to listen to throughout the movie, and the grassland and mountains are incredibly beautiful. 'A Mongolian Tale' is particularly enjoyable if you are interested in the people and culture of Mongolia. The story can move slowly at times, but the aesthetic appeal partly makes up for this flaw. It is a haunting story about love and forgiveness and a beautiful portrayal of the way of life of the Mongolian nomads.
