CGiii Comment

What an odd little film...

A man and a boy have a shared passion for the wind and - allegedly - each other...

It's a courtroom drama - like no other.

The photography makes everyone look extremely ugly...but, it adds to the weirdness of the film.

Definitely, one for the more curious...

Odd...but, effective.

The(ir) Blurb...
