Movie: Mongol

Mongol – the Genghis Khan story.

Beautifully shot, this Russian-made film tells the “untold” story of the early life of Genghis Khan. The characters are well-formed, and it ends up being a very human story. Yes, there are big set-piece battles, and there’s a fair bit of gore, but even that seems more of a dream sequence than having any sense of being overwhelming: they’re soothing, almost soporific in the way they’ve been shot.
