LAFF2016 ‘The wind beneath us’ – childhood evocations in island pleaser

LAFF2016 ‘The wind beneath us’ – childhood evocations in island pleaser

March 10 2016

A first film by a London-based filmmaker of Sri-Lankan origin touches hearts and minds in a tale of a friend lost and found…

By Dimple Pau

A MISSING white bull, a jar of coins and a determined young boy are brought together in this beautiful tale of survival and determination.

Picturesque views of vegetation and mountains set the scene of a rural Sri Lanka and a family whose livelihood depends on ‘Sudda’, a frisky white bull.

When Sudda goes missing, their world is turned upside down and a young boy ends up alone in the hustle and bustle of Colombo, in search for his beloved bull.

The Wind Beneath Us” brings all elements to the table, with riveting chase scenes, unconditional friendship and heart-warming chuckles.

Incredibly this is ‘London animal’ Nuwan Jayathilake’s first film, and he has certainly hit the ground running.

Even more impressive are the debut performances from real life brothers Sudam Katukithule (Kasun) and Praveen Katukithule (Vihanga) whose on-screen chemistry brings this film to life.

Whatever your background, “The Wind Beneath Us” will instantly invite you into its world and by the second half, have you rooting for an underdog whose only goal is to be reunited with his best friend.

ACV rating:*** (Out of five)
