[quote=“Silvanito, post:55, topic:68”]Companeros is quite clearly more light-weight than many other films by Corbucci, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
And spaghettis do have depth, in a subtle way, if you can see past the jokes and the bang-bang, while at the same time being entertaining :)[/quote]
But, just like every genre, not all of them require depth to be great films. I think Companeros is one of the two or three best spaghetti westerns ever made (at least among the ones that I’ve seen.) That’s my opinion. Yes, I think it’s better than The Great Silence. Is that because it’s not as dark as Silence? No, it’s because I find the characters more engaging, the music better and I simply enjoy watching it more.
