Catch the wind
3 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2006 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 35 films I saw there this made my top 10. Director Eduardo Mignogna who also co-wrote the screenplay has really come up with a wonderful movie here. This is a small film that has a big feel about it with it's great cast, cinematography and music. Federico Luppi is excellent in the role of Frank, and Antonella Costa as Alina bookends his performance nicely. Identity, guilt, love, justice, abandonment, pain and courage are interwoven in a beautiful story. It has that feeling of a good novel. It's a film I definitely would want to see again. I would recommend this film and give it a 7.5 out of a possible 10.
