Twelve-year-old Bazarbai is unlike other Nomad boys his age. He dreams of leaving behind the green pastures of his native Western Mongolian province, lured instead by the call of the urban jungle: Ulan Bator. But Bazarbai's father has his own aspirations: One day, the young boy will make him proud by following the famed eagle hunter's own footsteps. When Bazarbai's brother, Khan, is forced to leave home for Ulan Bator, Bazarbai feels deeply hurt and betrayed; he should have been the one sent into the big city. In an attempt to cheer him up, Bazarbai's father takes him to the great Eagle Festival; but the young boy is inconsolable. Suddenly, the prize eagle belonging to Bazarbai's father flies away, scared off by a photographer's bright camera flash. Stricken by fear and remorse that his father's beloved pet might have escaped for good, Bazarbai decides to follow the animal, thus embarking on an adventurous journey through torrential rivers and snowy mountains that inevitably lead him ...

nice movie
4 July 2012 | by alexfromhornSee all my reviews

If you want to see some action this won't be your type of movie. It's a movie about a boy and his eagle and how he's traveling to the capitol on his own to see his brother, that's it. But all in all it's nice and has some kind of a calming atmosphere. I like it because it's a completely different cultural impression than what I'm used to. Also the filming locations were awesome and somehow sad at the same time. Dialog was also pretty rare. If you like experiencing cultures or new places you will like, if you don't shouldn't watch this. The only thing I did not like about this movie was that some behaviors by some people seemed unrealistic and that sometimes there wasn't happening enough.
