Cinema Cindy Reviews: ‘The Mustang’

on May 16, 2019 - 7:08am
Los Alamos
“The Mustang” pairs a violent prison inmate with a raging mustang caught in the wild. The director of this film subtly juxtaposes the spirit of the horse against that of the man, so we are moved by the parallels. Few could tame (or “break”) this horse, much less communicate with it in a meaningful way. Both have known wild times as well as fear. Both are captives.
This is the first feature length film by French director Laure de Clermont-Tonnere.
