Sweeping vistas. A story about people you know nothing (or next to nothing) about. Color me intrigued. And after seeing this trailer, color me chomping at the bit.
Check out the gorgeous views! And the mix of culture clash and Cultural Revolution history sounds very interesting. Plus, wolves are beautiful (but I think I’ll need all the Kleenex.) Check out the synopsis too, while you’re at it:
In acclaimed director Jean-Jacques Annaud’s film adaptation of Jiang Rong’s best-selling novel, a young Beijing student is sent to live among the nomadic herdsmen of Inner Mongolia. Caught between the advance of civilization from the south and the nomads’ traditional enemies – the marauding wolves – to the north; humans and animals, residents and invaders alike, struggle to find their true place in the world.
Peep the trailer! And yes, I went with the subtitled trailer. I needed to know. I NEEDED TO KNOW.
