Movie Info

While traveling on the Trans-Mongolian Railway, when a cozy group of female western tourists are abducted by a horde of female Mongolians wearing tribal dress, they fear the worst. They are forced to learn traditional Mongolian ways, and are made to do all sorts of onerous chores in the old-fashioned ways. They are equally perplexed when, after about a month, they are released to return to the train and resume their journeys. The situation becomes clearer when they are back on the train and the most garrulous among the released women strikes up a conversation with a Mongolian woman wearing western attire. It seems that every year, many Mongolian women on vacation from their modern jobs return to the steppes for a holiday to keep their culture alive, and the western women's abduction was just another aspect of their role-playing. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Johanna D'Arc of Mongolia (Joan of Arc of Mongolia)

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

For all its outwardly probing observation and decorative delights, the movie concludes with an abstract touch that's as breathtaking as any of its sights and sounds.
