This is probably my favourite SW ever…I really grew up with the Colizzi’s trilogy as well as “A five mans army” and "One reason to live and one to kill"
What to say? I always felt that “God forgives…I don’t” is a gothic, dark movie. I am talking of the italian version that has an incredible, amazing dubbing that is the real magic touch of the movie.
Also somebody feel this movie is very slow…this adds this sense of darkness all over the plot.
It’s a strange feeling, I don’t know how to describe it but it looks like a macabre dream, a grim faiytale (beside the flashback the whole movie is a long trip back in the memory, back to the past, when Terence Hill and Bill Santantonio were friends and buddies)
from the very beginning when the train arrives with its charge of dead bodies (and the continuity becomes faster and faster and you drown into this macabre atmosphere since the very beginning) up to the flashback when Hill meets Wolff.
I always found that Colizzi’s movies are dark, gothic…all of them are mainly shot in the night or have the main actions/events in the night. If you see “Aces high” the whole second part, when they decide to challenge the casino is shot in the night, also “Boot hills” is mainly shot in the night or in dark environments (the circus, where the final scenes are shot is totally dark)…
Dark and slow paced action, along with macabre humor and an original construction of dialogues: talky but concentrated in certain moments only, otherwise carachters are pretty monosyllabic…
Yes…more than many other SW, I really think Colizzi’s trilogy is a very good example of gothic/grim fairytale
