Inspired by a true story LIKE THE WIND narrates 15 years of Armida Miserere's life, a woman who with determination and grit, but also personal suffering, was one of the first woman to become governor of prison. Armida Miserere, after suffering the loss of her loved one, found herself on the front line in the fight against crime, governing the most dangerous jail in Italy, while struggling to find the truth and to get justice. The film is conceived as long flashback that highlights the most important moments of her life in the attempt to unveil her mystery. Written by
Every frame of this film was extraordinarily beautiful. I felt as though I was visiting Italy. The films locations and sets appeared to be authentic. The music score matched the movie content perfectly. The story line progressed flawlessly, building the drama and tension as the plot unfolded. The authenticity of the characters was enhanced by the inclusion of the cigarettes and profuse smoking. I personally quit smoking over five years ago and must admit that I wanted a cigarette as I watched this film. I resisted, but felt the tension none the less. Another thing that I appreciated was that the English subtitles were easy to follow without distracting from watching the movie. Casting? What can I say? I am in love with Valeria Golino. She is so talented and so beautiful. The male actors were exceptional as well. Days after watching the DVD I found myself thinking, actually, ruminating about the film. It is a valuable addition to my movie library. Kudos to the Director, Producer and writers of this exceptional film.
