31 Mar 2011
Due to popular demand, we're excited to finally announce the release of Mongol on Blu-Ray!
Award-winning Russian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov (Prisoner of the Mountains) illuminates the life and legend of Genghis Khan in his stunning historical epic, Mongol. Based on leading historical accounts, Mongol delves into the dramatic and harrowing early years of the ruler who was born as Temudgin in 1162.
Mongol will be available on Blu-ray from May 5.
Mongol follows Temudgin from his perilous childhood to the infamous battle that sealed his destiny, travelling across the region's stark and beautiful tundra. The film paints a multidimensional portrait of the future conqueror, revealing him not as the evil brute of legend, but as an inspiring, fearless and visionary leader.
Mongol shows us the making of an extraordinary man, as well as the foundation on which so much of his greatness rested: his relationship with his wife, Borte, his lifelong love and most trusted advisor. Masterfully blending action and emotion against some of the most arresting terrain on earth, Bodrov delivers an exciting and awe-inspiring tale of survival and triumph, and a love story for the ages.
