Le vent de la nuit

Philippe Garrel France, 1999

DrFirestone's rating of the film The Wind of the Night

Sentimental, nostalgic trip about loneliness, love and struggle adapting to ever-changing reality. Also, this is a film about the 60s, the revolutionary days. About people, who had to forget about their ideals - or suffer life trapped in the past. I personally met such people, here in Poland, people who after the fall of communism couldn't or didn't want to change and adapt. Difficult topic, handled in a subtle way.
