Mongol (2007) depicts the life of Temudjin, the nomadic boy and adolescent that would one become one of the world’s most notorious leaders of conquest, Genghis Khan. Cinematography is excellent. Great story. Seemingly very accurate portrayal of what life was like on the Mongolian Steppe some 700-800 years ago. I found moderate similarity in the ways the Mongolians of the Steppe were portrayed and the culture of N.Am. plains native americans. The film was directed by two Russians and was nominated for the oscar for best foreign film in 2007. I recommend renting it and getting ready for an epic portrayal of this interesting slice of humanity.
