On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski, Nosferatu) 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 Trintignant, The Conformist) stands between the innocent refugees and the greed and corruption of the bounty hunters. In this harsh, brutal world, the lines between right and wrong aren’t always clear and good doesn’t always triumph. This new 2K restoration features superb photography and a haunting score from maestro Ennio Morricone. Director Sergio Corbucci’s bleak, brilliant and violent vision of an immoral, honorless west is widely considered to be among the very best and most influential Euro-Westerns ever made.
