A palpable sense of menace hovers over the proceedings … There’s much here that’s ominous about a close-knit community trapped by its customs.”

Tim Grierson, Screen International

In a village in northern Portugal, a rite of passage leaves irreversible scars on young Laureano, who is beaten by three other teenagers. Twenty-five years later, Laureano is still living on the outskirts of the village. The aggressors, now men, meet one night to celebrate the village festival. As night falls, an event brings the past to the surface and tragedy sets in. Remains of the Wind is a beautifully made and captivating drama about mob behaviour, intergenerational male toxicity, and injustice. Premiering as a Special Screening at Cannes, the film is a smart, provocative, and completely engaging portrait of a small town with a sickness at its heart. —Europa! Europa Film Festival
