Al Primo Soffio Di Vento

Franco Piavoli Italy, 2002

DIMITAR KUTMANOV's rating of the film At the First Breath of Wind

An absolute masterpiece. It is a pity indeed that Franco Piavoli's films have not received the deserved attention and recognition. For me this film along with 'Voci nel Tempo' is an astonishing achievement. Such purity of the cinematic expression, it is all so simple yet so infinite. This is as close as it gets to brining film close to life itself. No interpretation, no statements, no judgement...just the poetic gaze
