Wow! what can i saw, the cinematography had me blown away in this movie!
Even though i would say KEOMA is a more enjoyable film, this one is undeniably better made with some great camera angles.
I’ve had this a whie (you know how it is when you go to stick a film on but don’t think you can concentrate on the subtites when it’s late at night) and finally stuck it on this evening.
Johnny (Andrea Giordani) returns home to avenge the death of his father who was supposedly gunned down in cold blood by the ruthless bandit Santana.
Horst Frank plays Johnnys uncle who along with his two henchmen (Enzo’s Brother Ennio Girolami & Pedro Sanchez who played Carrincha in SABATA) is only out for himself and the gold.
Spaghetti western regular Gilbert Roland pops up from time to time to help Jonny out when he is in trouble (sort of like a guardian angel)
With a great score by Francesco De Massi, and what a song:
“I’m the man who never kills, not even for the love of gold”
I’ve got the German Koch dvd.
another Kotch special where it doesn’t mention anything about English subtitles being on it (maybee something to do with licencing?), you can’t even choose them on the subtitles page you have to do it with the remote once the film is running.
Kotch take great care with their spaghetti western releases and this is no exception, the master it was taken from is pristine.
Definately a classic, my only gripe is that i didn’t stick it on 7-8 months ago when i got it
