"'Winter Wind' was composed of only 12 shots. These tracking shots are, in fact, the subject of the film, which ostensibly depicts the cell of Croatian fascists (Ustashi) who assassinated King Alexander of Yugoslavia on his 1934 visit to France - an incident that nearly triggered a Mitteleuropean war when it was revealed that the terrorists were trained in Hungary."
