A very interesting story, a robust screenplay with an inspired director.
"Il vento fa il suo giro" looks at reality from a very interesting perspective. His look is participating, emotional but at the same time clear, thanks to a direction focuses on the close-up of actors.
It's a touching story about how difficult is the path to integrate a new family within the tissue of a small village up on the Occitan Alps.
The most important aspect of the movie is the rejection of every well established in advance schema. The outcome is a work clearly not accommodating that point the finger to intolerance and desire to growth a new society balance between tradition and innovation.
Most of the actors are not professionals; as a matter of fact they are part of the production team. Because there is no formal funding to the movie everyone co-produced the film and will share the profit, if any.
A very interesting story, a robust screenplay with a inspired director: two thumbs up.
