Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Into the Wind, a 2022 Polish romance, is a gentle story about a rich, sad girl who falls for a handsome windsurfing instructor at the luxury resort where she and her family are vacationing. They have sex on the beach, the film showing her breasts and their bodies from the back. Adults and older teens smoke marijuana and drink alcohol. Someone's mom died years back, and a windsurfer slams himself into a building, but no harm done. Infrequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," and "ass." In Polish with English subtitles.

Is It Any Good?
This story of young love has been told a thousand times before, better and more skillfully, but Into the Wind isn't unpleasant. It's a bit long, and its quiet progress can be downright boring at times, to the degree that if you're also working on a crossword puzzle, leafing through a novel, or doing homework and occasionally look up at the movie, chances are you won't have missed anything. Even when someone is injured, the filmmakers extract no drama from the development. A guy gets hurt and then he's fine, no biggie.
The saving grace is Sonia Mieteilica as Ania, with her dreamy warmth and star quality. If she ever gets a great script, she might break out into greatness herself. In all, this is a movie that never needed to exist, but its existence doesn't hurt anyone.
