The aging, conservative population of a small, sleepy village in the Italian Alps are surprised to see that a former French professor has settled there with his young wife and their three children to produce goat cheese, in order to escape the wrongs of civilization. At first they are suspicious of his unconventional ideas and lifestyle, then are conquered by the enthusiasm, kindness, helpfulness of the young family and start to see in them a possible rebirth of the place. But little by little misunderstandings, envy and conflicts take over. Written by

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.
