I strongly recommend this epic, mythical and heartbreaking film.
Rich in details about the life of the nomadic tribes based on a real Mongolian hero in the 1930's.
Wonderful, charismatic actors, and great cinematography--specially a very early scene where a herd of horses passes in-between three men bathing in the river.
No CGI, just brave actors-- and very disciplined horses, I hope.
It reminded me of a Western-- told from the Native American's side, mixed with a bit of MUSA, THE WARRIOR(Korea), another great epic.
The DVD I rented described it as fullscreen, but thankfully that is NOT so! It is in the correct 35mm format. Not super-widescreen, but at least one can see the entire horizontal format the cinematographer intended without the horrible cropping of fullscreen.
