باد ما را خواهد برد [The wind will carry us] (1999)
Calmly and slowly, this unfolds into a sublime and spiritual depiction of strangers from the city visiting a remote rural area. Who are they? Why are they there? What are they waiting for? In a movie seemingly about nothing at all, we follow the irresistible repetitions of everyday life in the polite and helpful atmosphere of the village microcosm. Homespun philosophy, persian poetry and friendly reasoning turns into unexpected drama when accident strikes, but life – and death – trudges on despite the ensuing chaos.
The natural warmth and humanistic intelligence of this whimsical riddle shines beautifully. Call it existential feelgood, or maybe mental slapstick. In my book.
