JUST THE WIND (Just the Wind) Bence Fliegauf, H/D/F 2011, 98 minread more... hide...
Inspired by real events. This spare, naturalistic drama centers on a Romany family from an isolated village where five other such families were gunned down in their own homes. At a time when Hungarian politics are taking an increasingly nationalistic turn, the pic’s frank acknowledgment of the country’s entrenched racism appears especially brave. Kudos and critical support will help “Wind” blow into international arthouse venues. (Variety)
