Polynesian adventure, 28 May 2009
10/10

I saw this in Bangkok in 1973 and was completely blown away by it but I have never seen or heard of it since - and this, apparently, is the first review here. Oceano (The Wind Blows Free) is an astonishing ocean adventure set in Polynesia with a very small amateur cast (and music by Ennio Morricone). Wouldn't want to spoil the fun by saying too much about the plot but, basically, a young (14? 15?) Polynesian boy sails around the Pacific in an outrigger looking for his dream island. Virtually no dialogue at all but the most stunning photography, and action that leaves you wondering how they ever filmed it. One of the most memorable films I have ever seen.
