Chinese movie "Wolf Totem", an adaptation of the best-selling novel, has been criticized by a Mongolian writer.

Guo Xuebo, a member of the China Writers' Association, described the movie's use of wolves to symbolize his culture as "against humanity."

He claimed on his blog the history and culture of the ethnic group has been tampered with in both the novel and the movie of Wolf Totem, where wolves are labeled as the totem of Mongolians.

Adding that, wolves have never been the totem of Mongolians.

The film, directed by French director Jean Jacques Annaud is adapted from Chinese writer Jiang Rong's novel that was published in 2004.

"Wolf Totem" was one of the most popular films at the cinema over the Spring Festival holiday, raking in over 38 million U.S. dollars at the box office between February 19th and 23rd.
