yesterday, i went to the cinema with my friend rana, to see the movie "Mongol", an epic about the rise of genghis khan. the movie is produced very well and on a large scale - bombastic battle scenes, lots of blood, romance, very well acted, a perfect soundtrack. at some points, it reminded me of "Braveheart", but then also the stories both take place around the same time (plus/minus a hundred years or so) and follow a strong leadership personality and warrior.

for me, in the center of the movie, of the story, is this haunted personality. a young boy who experiences nothing but hardship after his father was murdered, and who is running from his enemies all the time and never gets to rest. the image of this running man chased by horses kind of got stuck with me...
