Audience Reviews for The Wind Will Carry Us

  • Apr 13, 2017
    The film is light, funny and very amusing in the way it shows the prosaic everyday life of common people as witnessed by an idle and increasingly impatient man visiting a Kurdish little village in Iran, even if the poignant result ranks among one of Kiarostami's minor works.

    <i>In my small night, ah, the wind has a date with the leaves of the trees. In my small night there is agony of destruction. Listen! Do you hear the darkness blowing? I look upon this bliss as a stranger. I am addicted to my despair. Listen! Do you hear the darkness blowing? Something is passing in the night. The moon is restless and red. And over this rooftop where crumbling is a constant fear, clouds, like a procession of mourners, seem to be waiting for the moment of rain, a moment, and then nothing. Night shudders beyond this window and the earth winds to a halt. Beyond this window, something unknown is watching you and me. O green from head to foot, place your hands like a burning memory in my loving hands, give your lips to the caresses of my loving lips, like the warm perception of being. The wind will carry us The wind will carry us.</i> -Forough Farrokhzad- 97/100

    Another great Kiarostami visual that is brought all the more home by the wonderful glimpse of a funeeral in rural Iran. Another masterpiece from a master.

    Kiarostami, prova mais uma vez o seu grande talento num dos maiores cinemas do mundo: o cinema do Ira.
