Wênd Kûuni

There is currently no review on this movie available in English.

Ein Reisender entdeckt einen stummen Knaben im Busch. Er führt ihn ins nächste Dorf, wo er ihn einem Weber übergibt, der eine Tochter in etwa gleichem Alter namens Pognéré hat. Man gibt dem Knaben den Namen Wend Kuuni, was Gottesgabe bedeutet. Durch einen Schock findet Wend Kuuni seine Sprache wieder. Er hat eine ebenso erstaunliche wie exemplarische Geschichte zu erzählen?

César 1985 für den besten französischsprachigen Film

«La forme de communication orale est à l'origine de Wênd Kûuni. Le film a essayé de préserver la pureté, la naïveté de ce qui est un conte, mais qui est aussi, parce que raconté, partie intégrante de la vie. La praxis de la vie inspire les contes au beau récit dépouillé. A leur tour, les contes nourrissent la vie de leur enseignement, de leur âme.»
