Ramón Gieling / NL, 2009 / 98 min.
Love proves as intangible as the wind, in Ramón Gieling’s film about a scandalous relationship in the northern Spanish village of Cadaqués. The villagers are left to speculate what happened when the relationship ends in disaster.
The wind blows almost constantly along Northern Spain’s rocky coast. There, at the time of Franco’s dictatorship, the older villagers discuss the scandalous relationship between Pepet Tremolls and the much younger Rosa Campos Del Amor, during a game of cards. Tremolls was found dead on Christmas Eve. Suicide, people said. Or was it one of Rosa’s jealous lovers?
