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
Extremely engaging film. You are pulled into the story immediately. One develops loyalty to the main characters. This is a strong indication that the casting was perfect. The cinematography was superb. Beautiful vistas throughout. The director was able to guide the cast expertly that demonstrated pathos throughout. Thankfully there were moments of levity that helped to lighten the mood.
The English sub-titles are sometimes a burden for someone that does not speak Italian. However, in this instance, it was not a distraction. The scenes were so well constructed that the picture flowed seamlessly even with the sub-titles. The only objection was the incessant smoking. This apparently is a European fact and American will just have to accept.
Excellent job by all involved.
