Storyline

News quickly spreads of the murder of a Romany family in a Hungarian village. The perpetrators have escaped and nobody claims to know who might have committed the crime. For another Romany family living close by, the murder only serves to confirm their latent, carefully repressed fears. Far away in Canada the head of the family decides that his wife, children and their grandfather must join him as soon as possible. Living in fear of the racist terror that surrounds them and feeling abandoned by the silent majority, the family tries to get through the day after the attack. By nightfall when darkness descends on the village the family pushes the beds closer together than usual. Yet their hope of escaping the madness proves illusory. Based on an actual series of killings in Hungary that claimed the lives of eight people in less than a year, Bence Fliegauf portrays the pogrom-like atmosphere which breeds such violence. The camera stays hot on the heels of the protagonists, making the ... Written by Bence Fliegauf

A realistic insight to three people in fear
31 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

It's difficult to rate such a film objectively because it deals with an ongoing social issue that brings a rather bitter taste to the viewers. On the other hand, my opinion is that even the bitter taste is better than no taste at all - as it's often the case with the Hollywood type of films. In addition to that, I would recommend this film to all those who are fond of European cinema and who like to to feel something deeper while watching. If you're in search of a film that would merely entertain you, then "Just the Wind" might not be the best solution.

The thing I liked best in the film was the atmosphere. From the very beginning to the end, I constantly felt as if I was near the main characters - sensing their steps in the fields, their paths through the forest, their thoughts while being quiet, the uncomfortable fears of what might happen next. Although the film atmosphere is mostly awkward and unpleasant, it makes you feel as if you were in the Roma family's shoes. It seems more realistic than artistic, but also makes you think afterwards!

I also have to refer to another review on this site: I don't think anybody would gain a negative image about Hungary just because of watching this film. Every country has its crimes and its dark side, and let's not forget this is a Hungarian film after all. It's courageous to shoot a film about the issue that still isn't solved in a society.

Instead of portraying the Roma as a group, which would probably bring up a broader debate to the plot, the director focused on 3 individuals, making you sense their humanity. I believe this is the strongest and the most realistic message he could include. Direct political comments are left out, there are many silent parts of the film, which leaves every conclusion up to the audience.
