‘The Wind Will Carry Us’

Visually stunning, The Wind Will Carry Us is a quiet, understated experience of the everyday as city engineer Behzad (Behzad Doroni – Invasion, A Few Days Later) and his two colleagues travel to a rural Kurdish village, commissioned to keep vigil for a dying woman.

Little happens as director Abbas Kiarostami (Taste of Cherry, Certified Copy) immerses the viewer in Behzad’s experience (his colleagues are only heard, never seen). Forced to slow to the rhythm of the village and the surrounding landscape, his view on the world slowly changes.

Introspective yet visually expansive and with it’s largely non-professional cast, The Wind Will Carry Us is dignified, firmly grounded and deeply evocative.
