Sergio Corbucci's The Great Silence
On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus KInski Nosferatu, For a Few Dollars More) prey on a band of persecuted outlaws who have taken to the hills. As the price on each head is collected one-by-one, only a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Traintignant The Conformist) stands between the innocent refugees and the greed and corruption that the bounty hunters represent. But in this harsh brutal world, the lines between right and wrong aren't always clear and good doesn't always triumph. Featuring superb photography and a haunting score from maestro Ennio Morricone, director Sergio Corbucci's bleak, brilliant and violent vision of immoral, honorless west is widely considered to be among the very best and most influential Euro-Westerns ever made.
