« "Nothing happening" is everything happening between the lines, in the gap created between what is unstated onscreen and what we bring to the story ourselves. » (LA Weekly)


« If you are already an admirer of Mr. Kiarostami, The Wind Will Carry Us will confirm what you already know. But if you haven't yet encountered the work of a man many believe to be one of the giants of contemporary cinema, this is a good place to start. It's the funniest and most accessible of his films, and maybe the most visually arresting. His wide, clear landscapes will be fatally diminished, like old master paintings reproduced on postcards, if you see them on video. And the graceful adagio of his narrative rhythm may turn to tedium in the banality of your living room. The Wind Will Carry Us requires the reverent darkness and communal solitude of a theater. » (The New York Times)


« The Wind Will Carry Us, one of Kiarostami’s greatest, bristles with secrecy, and much of its mystique is derived from the sensation that important information is being held just out of view. This is a deeply, patiently observational film, and the details Kiarostami emphasizes seem somehow profound in their banality, a mystery of ineffable beauty.» (Village Voice)
