In Afghanistan, the ruthless sport of buzkashi (similar to polo) is a game of great pride. When Uraz (Omar Sharif, Lawrence of Arabia) breaks his leg and loses a spirited match, he brings shame to his village, especially his father, Tursen (Jack Palance, City Slickers), a former champion. After losing his leg below the knee, Uraz, in order to regain his honor, must learn to ride again and win with a special, one-of-a-kind horse. Directed by John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate, 1962), THE HORSEMEN is an epic, gripping tale.
