SHOULD THE WIND DROP
SI LE VENT TOMBE
International auditor Alain has arrived to appraise the airport of a small self-proclaimed republic in the Caucasus to green light its eventual reopening. Through Edgar, a local boy running a make-shift business in the airport, Alain will risk all to help this isolated territory to open up.
“An amazing debut by an Armenian director who manages here to create a permanent tension from almost nothing. A sort of minimalist DESERT OF THE TARTARS, with the ever stoic Grégoire Colin in the role of an engineer in charge of deciding on the reopening of the airport of a selfproclaimed Caucasian Republic. A permanent visual inspiration, a journey out of time and out of the ordinary where the filmmakers train their cameras.”
