  • saitosouta's rating of the film The Wind Blows Under Your Feet

    Magnifically atmospheric and drearily mythical, "Talpuk alatt fütyül a szél" is a rare Hungarian western (should I call it communism western?) in which a solitary bundit vagabonds on the wasteland in Hungary. It's surprising pleasure to see, in asphyxiating socialism, sinistely scorching sunset, horses careening on ground and bursting bullets of death. Its divine aura, brewed by strong cinematography, makes me awed.
