It can be said that this latest film about Genghis Khan have elements of exotification and mystification -as the story focuses on Khans early years before his (partly brutal) conquests and rule over the Mongolian empire. It can also be said that this is a movie. A real movie. Crafted by the hand of someone who knows how to create images and bring them to life.mongol_10_5024


The images in this movie have visual drive. The camera is not passively recording what the lead characters are doing, the camera is an active participant, shaping and reconstructing what it sees by beatuiful exposure, composition and use of focus. The colors are extraordinary, and combined with shifting focus in the different planes of the frame it creates a very nice look to the mise-en-scene.
