Stated as being a comedy on the back of the On Air-dvd I purchased but let’s get it straight this is NOT a comedy.

Terence Hill plays a hitman who assasinates whomever the highest bidder want taken care of. This leads him to a small village where the land owners want a bubbling workers’ ‘revolution’ taken care of before it gets out their hands by killing specific targets. Now its up to Hill if he (and his kid brother) are to continue their ill-doing or take some responsibility for their actions.

Didn’t expect much but was very entertained. A nice movie with a nice soundtrack and fine actors. Recommended!

I agree Brother AvatarDK
The Trinity connection is as dumb as they come. Slow moving to start, political in feel and a pretty smart film overall. Terence Hill is really good when he’s not twatting about trying to be funny.

A film starring Terence Hill but not as trinity. Trinity is in the title to capitalise on the success of that film and Terence Hill. Set in Spain and dealing with the anti hero coming to the aid of oppressed peasants in the Spanish Country side. Starring Terence Hill and Fernando Rey. Directed by Mario Camus. Filmed in Almonte Spain to the east of almeria.

Don’t worry, it will be merged :wink: You should check if the database entry links to a forum topic and if not - use the search engine

This is a part of the Grindhouse/Trinity set. As stated, not a comedy, probably not a western as not a gunbelt in sight. No revenge, no Trinity - Hill as Marco is a stoic hired killer. Not my cup 'o tea. Slow, uninspired and uninteresting. Maria Grazia Buccella as Soledad raises it to 1/5.

It does have horses and broad brimmed hats though. But I dont think I’d call it western either and it ends way too abruptley.


(Starblack) #9

I think it qualifies as an honorary Western as the themes are pretty much identical to those of the Zapata Westerns.

But it’s still a rather dull and ponderous affair.

A dull and ponderous affair? No spaghetti western?
I’ve had enough, take this …

Uau almost forget this Camus flick, saw it in TV many moons ago, and actually though it was a cowboy film with Terence Hill and everything, but can’t remember much. I’m not sure but I wouldn’t be surprised that due to subject of the film and the historial of Mario Camus till the date, that the Spanish authorities of the time were no stranger to the changes in the original ideias that the director had for the film, more or less Zapata if it happesn in Mexico we don’t care, but in Valencia more complicated.
Camus was, still is a very talented director but not on the same Level of Carlos Saura with whom he worked together in several projects, from the ones I’ve seen is best film is without a doubt Los Santos Inocentes, La Colmena also a quality film. One of his last films is a western by the way La vuelta de El Coyote, haven’t seen that one


(scherpschutter) #12

I thought about that too, but I haven’t found any proof of it. All I know, is that the second Italian producer wanted both Hill and Buccella in the cast, and asked for more western influences. But then again, it might have been easier to sell the film in Spain as a sort of ‘spaghetti western’. Franco wasn’t really a fan of Proudhon, as far as I know.

Watching this movie, you notice that Camus is no Saura, like you said.
Still it’s a film worth watching

Yes, the themes are similar to that of the Zapatas.

Not a bad flick at all.

Thanks for the review Scherp. I’ve always wanted to see this one.

What’s the best DVD release in your opinion?


(scherpschutter) #15

I watched (a copy of) Greek VHS, fullscreen, running time 93 minutes, English audio, Greek subs

The Italian DVD runs only 83 mns, apparently the opening (the part before the credits) is missing. It begins with the scene of the train and the Shakespeare quote. There are also German and Spanish DVDs but I know nothing of them

Have an Australian dvd in around 1.85 widescreen with english audio and runs just over 93 mins. Quality is not bad.

I could have given you a copy of the uncut German DVD


(Bill san Antonio) #18

Scandinavian dvd release is a good one too.


(Novecento) #19

Thanks guys.

The Australian release sounds interesting. What’s the English dubbing like? I’m assuming the original language is Spanish, although Hill will be dubbed in any case I suppose.

Stanton, the database entry says the German release has Spanish audio. I don’t suppose it has Spanish subs too does it? Just makes it a bit easier to follow for me with my rusty Spanish.


(Stanton) #20

No, only German and Spanish audio and some German subs for the scenes which weren’t dubbed for the cut German version.
