As a Manchurian, I appreciate Korean filmmakers for using the forgotten Manchu language in this great film. In the history of Manchuria, its most frequently mentioned neighbors are Japan, Russia and China. Japan even once established a Manchu nation. But unlike Korea, Japan has never made a film with using Manchu language. After so many years, we finally realize who our real friend is. God bless Korea, a nation and neighbor worth respecting.
