The movie “Mongol” is a story recounting the early life of Temujin, who later became known as Genghis Khan, and is played by Tadanobu Asano. The movie depicts many hardships that Temujin faced, starting with the death of his father when Temujin was only 9 years old. Throughout Temujin’s young life, there were always many stumbling blocks along his path but he always managed to overcome them. After yet another time of running away from his enemies, Temujin falls through the ice and is later found by Jamukha, who is played by Honglei Sun, and the two quickly become friends.

But despite all of these hardships, Temujin still managed to become the leader of Mongolia. Another message of this movie was loyalty to one’s family.
