A group of greedy bounty hunters led by the brutal Loco (Klaus Kinski) are in pursuit of a band of outlaws who have escaped and are hiding out in the hills of the snowy Utah frontier. After an innocent man is killed with no remorse, a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is called upon by the man's wife to seek revenge. Standing between the innocents and the corrupted bounty hunters, Silence decides to mete out his own brand of justice, even though the lines between the bad and the good have already been blurred. Famed Italian director Serio Corbucci (DJANGO) helmed this bleak, stylish, and violent spaghetti western, which features a score from Ennio Morricone.

The only companies I have had delivery problems with are HMV and Play.


I love this film - very very bleak and hard hitting. And one of my favourite Morricone scores... very understated but beautiful here is the main theme for your listening pleasure:


And welcome all to the world of Sergio Corbucci - one of the three Spaghetti Sergios, the others being Leone and Sergio Sollima... who directed these excellent westerns:

Corri uomo corri (1968)
... aka Big Gundown 2: Run, Man, Run (USA: promotional title)
... aka Run, Man, Run (International: English title)

Faccia a faccia (1967)
... aka Face to Face

Resa dei conti, La (1966)
... aka The Big Gundown (USA)

The last one being very difficult to find - at least it was... anyone know where to get the DVD?

Face To Face is an excellent example of a political Spaghetti Mexi-Western !

Oh, back to Corbucci...

recommended also are

Vamos a matar, compañeros (1970)

Mercenario, Il (1968)
... aka A Professional Gun (Europe: English title) (UK)
... aka The Mercenary (USA)

Crudeli, I (1967)
... aka The Hellbenders (USA)

Django (1966)

and not forgetting his violent Bonnie and Clyde style spaghetti western:

Banda J.S.: Cronaca criminale del Far West, La (1972)
... aka Bandera Bandits (USA)
... aka Sonny and Jed

with Susan George in the Bonnie roll (Sonny!) who gets treated very badly by her misogynist partner throughout and at the end walking off and leaving him. To which he replies by shouting

" I LOVE YOU... YOU MOTHER ****ER ! ! "

They don't write them like that any more!
