A Prolonged Waltz of Death
15 June 2013 | by (Russian Federation, Ivanovo) – See all my reviews

A pirate island and hidden treasure, a death of a brother and the thirst for vengeance - that is what lies on the surface. Northwest Wind is based vaguely on the plays of Thomas Middleton and Cyril Tourneur that are both named The Revenger's Tragedy and have somewhat similar plots. There are also some allusions to Hamlet by William Shakespeare in the scene of play inside play including original text by Cyril Tourneur. The action more resembles a ballet than pirate adventures and the scenes of vengeful murders are symbolically histrionic and artfully conditional. It is quite interesting to compare this theatrical fantasy with Revenger's Tragedy by Alex Cox which is screened in the style of postmodern punk.
