Mongolia is a fascinating country, medieval in many ways, yet as part of the U.S.S.R. also a communist state. In some ways the collectives suit the nomadic way of life. We see how the flocks are tended. The winters are bitterly cold and the country is magnificent in its contrasts.
Made in 1985, this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made.
