a powerful film
25 February 2014 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I saw yesterday at an industry screening in Los Angeles the film Come Il Vento, (Like the wind). It's a powerful film, with a strong, sorrowful character. Armida Miserere, one name two tragedies as she ironically calls herself, was a woman that was strangled by a power system (the jail) dominated by violence and corruption. She had to be strong, sometime hard, but the film shows that she tries in anyway to keep her humanity. In fact, even if the film tells a dark story, it's not heavy or hard to watch, but rather moving and engaging. Valeria Golino, this wonderful Italian actress with an extensive American film background, gives to Armida her vitality and her sensuality and makes this controversial role genuine sympathetic. The film subject could easily be made for television, and in some moment it could fall in the genre, but the director's approach has a unique style, it's always original and digs deeply into the story and the character. I was totally blown away from such a powerful film and I think this is one of those kind of film that will stay in time. The film was released only recently in Italy after screening at the Rome film festival and still waits its international premiere, I believe it deserves the best form the festival circuits and from distributors world wide.
