"At the height of the Mexican Revolution,
a mysterious young American (Lou
Castel of Fist
In His Pocket) joins a gang of marauders
led by El Chucho (Gian Maria
of A Fistful Of Dollars)
on a series of savage raids to steal guns for a powerful rebel
general. But when the Gringo brings his own cold-blooded ideals
to the bandits, El Chucho discovers that the real weapons
of war belong to no army. In a land ravaged by poverty and
violence, can true freedom be bought with a single bullet?
(For A Few Dollars More)
and Martine Beswick
(Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde,
co-star in this legendary western directed by Damiano
Damiani from a powerful screenplay
co-written by Oscar®-nominee Franco
Battle Of Algiers, The
Big Gundown). Also known as Quien
Sabe, this thrilling epic features
some of the most surprising performances, radical politics
and shocking violence of any "Spaghetti Western"
ever made." - from DVD
It's a good story that moves along slowly,
but without getting boring. The relationship between the two
main characters is interesting. And even though Kinski wasn't
really in it that much, he manages to make an impression non-the
less, and his character is really great. I also liked the
El Chuncho character, where Volonté did a good job.
I just love the Italian western "heroes".
Also including a few humorous scenes, including the scene
where El Chucho is trying to teach some poor village people
how to fire a rifle. Also look out for the nice ending!
All in all a very good western which is part of the "Once
Upon a Time in Italy, Spaghetti Western Collection, but it
doesn't quite reach the level of the best one in the collection,
It's essential viewing for all fans of spaghetti western though!
