Wolf Totem a film by Jean Jacques Annaud filmed in China was one of the best movies that I've seen. This 3D movie was beautiful in that you appreciated the scenery in Mongolian territory. This movie held my interest from the start watching two city young men working out in no man's land living in Yorks. It does delve into the life that people live in Communist China and also teaches what the life was like in Mongolia. This movie did have the subtitles because it was all spoken in Chinese but I found that it was no worst than watching "War of the Planet of the Apes." It was a good movie that teaches about the Wolf living in the wild and how to learn from them. It was a tough life for all involved in this movie but it does have a happy ending.
A must see movie!
