Great. Movie about a great country and people
30 November 2013 | by Jp-858-330501See all my reviews

I have had the privilege to see Kazakhstan many times. This movie showed the world the great natural beauty of Kazakstan, the mountains, prairies, and the people. The steppes as pictured had to be filmed in the actual steppes of the Tin Shin mountains, these scenes brought back great memories of this beautiful country. The villages had to be actual original habitats as you can see in the Mueseum in Almaty. The casting for this movies is absolutely wonderful. The Kazak language was refreshing to hear. This movie captured my heart as memories were resurrected from my heart. I thank the group that produced this movie and for their depiction of so many accurate descriptions through the art of cinematography. I recommend this movie for any one that loves freedom and I appreciate the culture of the Kazaks and their honorable approach to friendship as aptly presented in this wonderful movie based on their recent history. May Kazahstan remain free.
