Wind takes a straightforward concept and spins it into something special. It’s about exactly what the name implies–a town where it is constantly windy beyond all reason. From that, director Robert Loebel piles sight gags on top of each other, finding increasingly odd ways for the townsfolk to cope with their environment. It’s a tidy film and only enhanced by the simple art, with the kinds of blocky characters and sharp angles that seem like they might’ve evolved through erosion. It’s efficient, too, without so much as an unnecessary beat. Clever, cute, and just a little contemplative, it’s a perfect little film in its own way.
