Nice film, but a little bit too slow
29 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Children in the Wind" is an interesting, slow, contemplative film that depicts two children's lives. It is nicely done, and with a down to the earth atmosphere, but at the same time, it suffers from just not offering much in the plot department and being a little bit repetitive.

The direction is fine, and the acting acceptable enough, even if it suffers from some stillness. The scenery and camera work is old-style, and brings the world to live, a world in which it is easy to immerse oneself in. On the other hand, the two children's story is not as interesting as it could have been, and it could be seen as a little bit shallow, as some moments are unnecessarily stretched.

It is not a bad film, but suffers from lack of focus.
