[quote=“Lindberg, post:1, topic:847”]There have been a few remakes of Sergio Leone’s first SW over the years, which of course was a remake of Kurosawa’s Yojimbo in the first place.
Anyway if you’re not already familiar with it, the Icelandic film Hrafninn Flygur from 1984 is at times almost scene for scene a remake of Fistful!
It’s about vikings in Iceland but the style and story is pure Leone Spaghetti-Western
It was a co-production between Iceland and Sweden, the Swedish title is Korpen Flyger, it also had an English title When the Raven Flies.
I’m not sure exactly in which countries it was shown though.
If you can find it it’s an interesting film to see, unfortunately I don’t have a copy of it at the moment.[/quote]
I’m glad to read about it here. I’ve seen it on Dutch (?) television, I suppose somewhere in the eighties , and didn’t remember the title. I’m pretty sure I saw it on television, and I guess it wasn’t released theatrically overhere, but I’m not sure.
It’s never mentioned when Fistful/Yojimbo are discussed, so from time to time I thought it was only a dream.
I remember I liked it very much, but I thought the ending was a bit different. There was something about a very young boy watching his father (?) getting killed. Or am I mixing things up?
