[quote=“Phil H, post:18, topic:946”]This is an important point, I think.
For example, Cemetery Without Crosses was discussed earlier. Now, for me, Hossein’s character is genuinely troubled by what he allows to happen to the girl in this film. And, moreover, it is shown as a tragic event with tragic circumstances for all involved. Hossein’s complicitness in the girl’s violation leads to his own demise and is not trvialised at any point. It is also handled tastefully, and I think more effectively, by happening off screen; with only the girls screams to convey the assault.[/quote]
I agree about CWC
Also Maria (Michele Mercier) seems to be very troubled by what she allows to happen to the girl
But this is a very grim and tragic film in other ways too, Manuel also kills the two innocent men in the saloon just so that he can be hired by the Rogers gang
