Die Windpomp: Review

Die Windpomp (The Windmill) tells the story of Hendri (Armand Greyling), a 17 year old who has lost his parents. He arrives in a strangely familiar retirement village where he encounters the odd personalities living there.

Soon, Hendri meets young Margot (Leandie du Randt), and is smitten. So begins the love story as the two grow closer and closer. However, things at the retirement village and its occupants are not all as they seem. There are enough twists to the story, that try as you might, few people will predict the outcome.

Die Windpomp is a sweet story of friendship, love and self. Wonderfully filmed and expertly told, audiences will be captured by the story. The humour is not forced, but there are some hilarious moments. The film is set to be a South African favourite, and is one that should be supported by all.

Die Windpomp opens 25 April 2014 in South Africa.
