For most of his life, Ignacio Carrillo traveled the villages of northern Colombia, playing traditional songs on his accordion, a legendary instrument said to have once belonged to the devil. He eventually married and settled in a small town, leaving the nomadic life behind. But after the traumatic death of his wife, he vows to never play the accursed accordion again, and embarks on one last journey to return the instrument to its rightful owner. On the way, Ignacio is followed by FermÃn, a spirited teenager determined to become his apprentice. Tired of loneliness, Ignacio accepts the young man as his pupil and together they traverse the vast Colombian terrain, discovering the musical diversity of Caribbean culture. Hardened by a life of solitude, Ignacio tries to discourage FermÃn from following in his footsteps, but destiny has different plans for them. Written by

You need to be able to spend your time reading the subtitles (if you don't speak Spanish)and concentrate of the action of the movie at the same time.
The Wind Journeys is an interesting movie for those who love mysteries, foreign films, and Hispanic dialog. Only adults can attempt to understand the movie. This is not for kids. Baby boomers might not appreciate this movie. I guess that most of the entertaining value of this movie is to discover the movie's true premise. I watched this movie to figure out the movie's premise -- either demonic possession or crazy mind. At the end, I figured that each premise was equally plausible. The beginning of the movie starts off at a real slow pace, literally and figural. I was pretty well turned of by the movie's scenery at the beginning, but it got better. You need to be able to spend your time reading the subtitles (if you don't speak Spanish)and concentrate of the action of the movie at the same time. You might want to see it again to fully appreciate this movie. I don't have the time to see such a confusing movie again for I watch many many movies (although my favorites I can watch many times). During the past 15 to 20 years, I have watched over 10,000 movies. This is not going to be a repeat performance. But it does have some artistic value. Not very entertaining to me. I rated it higher than a 1 because of its premise complexity. I figured that any movie that can keep me guessing deserves something for its effort. No popcorn here.
