[font=arial]Just viewed The Wind Is Whistling Under Their Feet.
An outlaw returns to an area where he is a hero to the local people who farm the land. The local people are in the spotlight as they do not agree with the state building a canal across their farm land, but it is not long though before the local people turn against the outlaw…
[font=arial]Film is mostly set on the very flat autumn landscape, where for the most part nothing can be seen. There are not really any towns, but just a few buildings here and there. During the last 20 minutes of the film the snow starts to set in, and with events that start to begin you do start to think a little of The Great Silence. Guns are of the single shot variety (which sounded a little false sounding to me when shot). I enjoyed spotting some different cultural elements. For example the men smoked long pipes and in one scene when two men went to eat in an Inn they eat from the same plate. Music is traditional of the country, which you will either hate or love. The lyrics were different (the lyrics are subtitled into english), and I think I would have laughed if sung in english. Not a great deal of gunplay in the film, and interesting to see the main character point his gun side on so to speak ( similar to the way Chow Yun Fat holds a gun in his films he made with John Woo). Alot of the characters clothes would not have looked to much out of place in a Hammer period style film.[/font]
[font=arial]Re the DVD quality. There is a slight hum / interference type sound on the soundtrack at times which may be a distraction for some. The print is a little dark at times.[/font]
[font=arial]For me the film is of curiosity value on the main part. Film is for people looking for something different and who love autumn landscapes.[/font]
