There is a Northern clan the power of which belongs to women. And each of them is strong and independent, but at the same time they all "lived in anticipation of love". However, so far, only Benedict, the son of the main character Margarita (played, of course, by Litvinova herself), finds love. Fanny (Ulyana Dobrovskaya, Litvinova's daughter) is a perfect match for Benedict (Anton Shagin), although the story of their acquaintance is too indecently fabulous and naive. On New Year's Eve, she wishes that Benedict loved only her, "until death and after death". She works as a flight attendant and has to leave soon after the New Year celebration. Benedict is reluctant to let Fanny go, but she is adamant, and he makes the fatal mistake of letting her fly away.
From now on, everything goes wrong. The fields with buried money chests are rotting, the house is falling into disrepair, and relations between family members are heating up. Everything is resolved, however, quite predictably. But because of the costumes, the scenery, specific speeches, music, and, in general, the incredible charming atmosphere, it is difficult to break away. The North Wind is the quintessence of everything that Renata Litvinova represents. Mystery, fabulousness, softness along with the danger, likewise cat paws, some kind of constant role-playing game.
It's an incredibly beautiful, mesmerizing movie, but for the most part, that's all that this film has. Litvinova, of course, is a great director, with her unusual vision, but at the same time she tries to be simultaneously a screenwriter, an actor and a producer... She makes movies for herself and about herself, so this all is, of course, not surprising, but in this way she is too fixated on herself and does not make sure that the flights of her thoughts are clear to the audience.
