‘Öndög’: the story of the camel and the egg

Onze score

In the ice-cold Mongolian steppe, where dinosaur eggs are sometimes found, an inexperienced policeman has to guard the corpse of a woman. He is accompanied by a shrewd, liberated shepherdess who knows how to ward off wolves, has an excess of love, and keeps you warm by having lots of sex. Öndög, Mongolian for egg, illustrates an alternate vision of life, death, time, and love, and does so without wasting words. The slow, softening film that won the main prize at the Ghent Film Festival lets its visuals speak for themselves.
