The Wind Blows Round, 20 August 2008
Author: greenylennon from Italy

Now tell me: how did you feel after this movie? You must be true. I felt really guilty because I live daily similar situations: everybody thinks that those immigrants who work really hard are dirty, nasty, killers, thieves, rapers, robbers. I have to admit, when I hear all those prejudices I start feeling bad, because they, not, we always forget they're human beings, just like us. Let's come back to the film. Here the stranger doesn't come from Albania, but from France. He's a shepherd (former high school teacher), he's married with three children and he produces cheeses. But he will be emarginated, no matter if he's honest or so. He's a stranger, he brings an hope to a dying village, so he must be emarginated, according to the village's inhabitants. Even the most open-minded ones won't accept completely the French family. Will there be a hope, a light? I don't want to spoil the movie for you, but I can only recommend it because it makes you harm, but then you have to thank it because it made (or tried to make) you a better person.
