The last Sw I watched, not bad for a heavily classic western influenced SW. If it wasn’t for the usual Italian locations, and if I didn’t known the actors, for me this would have been a regular US western, even Pazzafini looked more like someone from Brooklyn.
The story at start looked like the usual revenge one, with the kid avenging his father dead, but it turn out to be a bit different, for the better I think, nothing amazing but well done, there’s something taken from Shane in the film mostly cause of the kid, but still I enjoyed.
Antonio Luiz de Teffe made a performance in effort not an easy part to play if we think about it, also both Richard Wyler and Giovanni Cianfriglia made some very nice villains in what was big upgrade in the film. The final showdown with the Circus strike force for the rescue looked nice, so I guess Colizzi didn’t start the Circus thing.
So yeah I liked nothing spetacular, but nice to watch and kind of reminds us that Euro western were many times mere copies of US Western, or even better were US Classic Westerns made in Europe.
Watched so much Steffen films lately that became curious about the man, viewd some interviews he made in Brazil and read his biography, found out some nice and intersting things about the guy, for instance he fought the nazis with the Italian Partizans still in his teens (didn’t had more than 14/15 years old), he didn’t like riding horses, and didn’t know how when he did his first spag, lying to the director (Mulargia) about that, also known as free spirit men, he once said “…There’s no constitution that forces you to marry…”.
After all one of the few SW stars (does Chris Huerta count as a SW star?) that speak Portuguese.
