The Wind Blows Round

Synopsis: The aging, conservative population of a small, sleepy village in the Italian Alps are surprised to see that a former French professor has settled there with his young wife and their three children to produce goat cheese, in order to escape the wrongs of civilization. At first they are suspicious of his unconventional ideas and lifestyle, then are conquered by the enthusiasm, kindness, helpfulness of the young family and start to see in them a possible rebirth of the place. But little by little misunderstandings, envy and conflicts take over.

You live for the fortnight

you come here on holiday!

Let's not go to far.

Anyway, I don't want to cause

you problems.

You always do what you want.

If you want, I'll continue being

deputy mayor like this,

like a tourist, during the fortnight

I'm here in Summer.

The we'll see how things turn out...

We'd need someone

to rent him a house,

a barn, pastures...

They're all so diffident.

But if someone gives them a push,

they'll follow

and bit by bit

they'll get to like the idea.

I'm tired of all these battles.

I always hoped one of our lot

would come back one day.

Maybe the son of emigrants.

Maybe someone like you,

but with a normal job,

with a family.

Costanzo, come on, we're going down!

You're late.

I stopped to talk for a bit.

- Anything new?

- No, nothing.

Fausto met a foreigner

who'd like to come and live

in the village.

He's a shepherd.

He's got as young family,

we should give him a hand.

You can imagine

what the others said.

Why on earth

did I stand for election?

A young family in the village...

a bit of life...

I brought back the books

you lent me.

- All that weight with one arm...

- I'll help you carry them home.

A temporary arrangement

would suffice for the moment.

If you've not rented

that house in Borgata Durandini,

it would do nicely.

He'd stay up here all year?

And who is this phenomenon?

You really want to come here,

or is it just an idea?

If there's the possibility...


This winter,

before the kids are born.

What does your wife say?

I described the village to her,

I think she'll like it.

She'd like a big house.

We've got to find

a house to rent.

It would be important

for the village.

No, no... we don't know him.

We must know the people that come.

Don't let yourself
