( aka 'The Wind Will Carry Us' or 'Bad ma ra khahad bord' )

directed by Abbas Kiarostami

Iran 1999


"In Abbas Kiarostami's The Wind Will Carry Us, a quotation from the Iranian poet Forough Farroukhzad, catches the viewer unawares with its meditative beauty, like an enigmatic lyric with a repetitive, incantatory stanza form. And these are qualities which, far from being difficult or alienating, are refined and clarified by the unaffected directness of Kiarostami's cast, professional and non-professional, from whom he elicits sublimely natural performances. From first to last, the impression is of utter confidence and mastery."

Comments:

The MK2 DVD is far superior in most every option. The New Yorker has poorer color separation and is overly contrasted at times. Skin tones are better in the MK2 disc. The picture is hazier at times on the New Yorker and of course the marvelous M2K extras on disc 2 are the biggest selling feature. Many of us were concerned whether they would have English sub-titles and I can categorically state, 'they do'. I won't say the New Yorker disc is flawed, but it is obvious that the MK2 is the best. Since the MK2 is so well done, in comparison it makes the New Yorker look weaker. Usually there is compensation for the 4% PAL speed-up, but it doesn't seem to have been corrected here. The New Yorker is more reasonably priced and a good purchase for R1'ers. I would recommend this film in either format, but if money is not object and you want the extensive extras, go for the R2. If you don't have a Region-free machine you have no excuse not to buy this DVD. The film is a masterpiece. Bravo to New Yorker for bringing it to North America.
