Plot: Will Parker, played by Matthew Modine, loses the Americas Cup, the worlds biggest sailing prize, to the Australians and decides to form his own syndicate to win it back. Runtime: 126 mins Release Date: 11 Sep 1992
This is one of the movies I never tire of seeing again. Beautiful sailing scenes, but you don't have to know anything about sailing to appreciate it. The cast did an earnest and excellent job. It must have been a labor of love to make. Don't miss it.
Cinematography was superb! Action and beauty... (by cghowell2)
When's it coming on DVD? I want widescreen and surround sound to really enjoy this movie at its best. You don't have to be a sailing enthusiast to get caught up in the passion of sailing and The America's Cup. Every time I watch this film I am reminded of the splendor of time spent on the water.
Uplifting come from behind drama. (by scootwhoman)
This is an amazingly well crafted film, which captures the excitement, danger, and intelligence involved in racing big sailboats, while being a warmly human, sad romance. I have found it to be the most uplifting film I think that I have ever seen, without being cheesy, forced, or artificial. I was lucky enough to see live footage taken from on the boats during the America's Cup races held off of Melbourne following Australia winning the Cup, and this movie recreates the immediacy of those broadcasts. Wonderful editing, rich sound, and skillful boat handling combine to dispel the sense of <more>
disbelief entirely.The characters are developed well, and have depth and substance, which adds to the power of the film to engage. One does not need to know anything about sailing to get swept up in this film, but those who do will appreciate the accuracy with which the film was made.
The quintessential yacht racing movie (by jerelull)
As a long-time sailor and racer, I admit that most consider a sailboat race like watching the grass grow, but they've done a great job of producing exciting racing scenes, while having so few technical inaccuracies that the most avid of us keep rewinding to review and debate. Take good note of the early dinghy racing scenes. I don't believe they used any trick photography: things really can happen that fast.Of course, there's a larger set of stories, the classic love stories: between men and women, of sailing, of ideas, of ideals; the rough retelling of the Dennis Connor story <more>
though I place Robertson/Weld as Connor, not Modine/Parker ; an accurate representation of the "Old Boys'" network that *is* big-money yacht racing --I've met "Abigail Weld" many times; and the "absurdity" of a desert-based effort winning the Cup, a nod to the Melges' campaign.The photography is astounding, the character development the reason for the film's length good, and the music complimented everything admirably.That it's "about" sailing will turn many off, but those of us with a love of the sea and sailing hold this as a classic to be cherished.
Matthew Modine as Will Parker and Jennifer Grey as Kate Bass do a great job in this movie. Jennifer is tan, athletic, and a beautiful tomboy sailor. Matthew Modine appears to fit right in with the ivy-league "good old boys", but in the end chooses his teammates more wisely! "WIND" has some interesting characters and the interactions between characters is interesting. The movie holds the viewer's attention until the end. The scenery is beautiful, the ocean scenes breathtaking and the film quality and colors are rich. The wind catching the sails and hitting Will's <more>
and Kate's faces makes the viewer feel like he or she is right there beside them. "WIND" is a "feel good" movie, that makes the viewer feel like a winner when the credits run!
Heart and Soul Excitement, Timeless Messages (by Daniel_Fattibene)
After reading over 200 reviews of "Wind", most of which praise it to the stars and rave and rave on, there is little I can add to such comments as "stirs the soul", "takes your breath away", "one of the best movies of all time", "should be on the shelf of every family with children", and "should be required viewing for young people and anyone bored with life". This film, one of the best examples of director Carroll Ballard's magic, will knock your socks off and blow you away with its excitement but realism you will hear and feel <more>
the boats groaning and keening with the wind stresses! , and GREAT MESSAGES - It is about losing everything, and winning it all back again through individual and team angst and sheer will I have shown parts of it to my science students not just for the physics of sailing, but for these timeless messages . Sailor or not, no matter how many times you watch it, it leaves you glowing for hours.
One thing is for certain - you will either hate this film, especially if you can't stand the sea, boats and wind, or, if you like any of these, especially if you like _all_ of them, you will love it. Admittedly it has a simple, proven plot, gives short shrift to the history of the America's Cup and features a rather non-describt cast - but the film does have superior and imaginative cinematography, impeccable editing and a marvelous soundtrack, as well as a slow, but steady build-up of drama. To my knowledge there is no other film that even comes as close as this movie to capture the <more>
feeling, tension and athmosphere of offshore competitive racing. It deals with an unconventional, off-beat setting and theme - go, see/rent/buy it if you can stand that.............
When I first saw this film a few years ago I was totally amazed, what happened to it upon release? Granted, here in the UK I do not know if it ever got a cinema run, but until it appeared on one of the satellite channels I'd never even heard of it. What a waste!The film does a excellent job of dramatizing a sport that on first appearances to the layman will probably appear boring. A fine balance has to be drawn between exposition and drama, and I believe Wind achieves this admirably. This supported by the many friends who have seen this film upon my recommendation, most with no interest <more>
in sailing at all.The two leads are fine, the Aussie skipper is good fun as a typical Aussie! The only bad call is the Abigall Weld character - rapidly becomes annoying and unrealistic.Where the film scores even better is the superb camera work during the racing sequences, in particular the aerial shots - quite breathtaking. No review would be complete without mentioning the films score - quite simply some of the most uplifting and beautiful music I have ever heard.Wonderful film, highly recommended.
Cinematographay, superb editing, and a first class sound track make this film. The light in Australia and Newport, aerial shots, even computer graphics in news scenes , long framing shots, camera movement, medium and close shots on board the boats, and excellent narrative editing thrill the eye and our love of story.Contrast between the ocean and the desert where designer and builders construct the American challenger boat bring a delightful balance to the iconography.Preppie clothing and elegant on land settings let us pretend ourselves into a special and exclusive world. With all this, the <more>
actors play their hand in the melodrama with just the right pitch. I enjoyed the movie. Well worth watching again.
