Fascinating, emotional and passionate..
12 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not to be confused with the Carlos Ruiz Book, The Shadow Of The Wind, this is a film by Yves Simoneau based on the book by Anne Hebert.

The story is of a young man, Stevens, who returns to his native village after a five year exile caused by a violent quarrel with his father. The story centers around some of the women in his village. Passion seethes beneath the Protestant, inter-bred villagers. Stevens is very aware of the affections of the women around him but he wants the only women who appears to resist him, Olivia. Tragedy ensues..

The film is in french with English subtitles. There is a lot of monologue accompanied by some haunting violin music. Worth a watch if you can track it down.
