Quotes

Eugene: So how come you decided to leave home tonight?
Jackie: I decided to leave a couple of months ago but every time I started planning it for real, I started feeling kind of guilty... like I would hurt my mom's feelings for leaving... or my friends would think I was looking down on them because I didn't want to hang out watching TV anymore. I want to do something different, but I guess I've just been feeling guilty about leaving.
Eugene: Why is tonight any different?
Jackie: Well I've been listening to you and I hear all ...

Intriguing, Weird and Bitter Romance
7 November 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Jackie (Heather Graham) was thirteen years old, she spoke through a wind tunnel through the desert with a young man 500 miles apart. Seven years later, the romantic Jackie and the skeptical Eugene (Michael A. Nickels) make contact again with each other, when they exchange their hopes, failures, expectations, frustrations and life experiences. 'Desert Winds' is a low budget movie, having an intriguing, weird and bitter romance through the dialog between Heather Graham and Michael A. Nickels. The story is disclosed in a very slow pace and it is recommended for viewers who like to find different and unknown movies like me. I bought this VHS just because of the name of Heather Graham and I do not regret. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): 'Ventos do Deserto' ('Desert Winds')
