Sergio Corbucci – Il grande silenzio AKA The Great Silence [+Extras] (1969)


A group of greedy bounty hunters led by the brutal Loco/Tigrero (Klaus Kinski) are in pursuit of a band of outlaws who have escaped and are hiding out in the hills of the snowy Utah frontier. After an innocent man is killed with no remorse, a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is called upon by the man’s wife to seek revenge. Standing between the innocents and the corrupted bounty hunters, Silence decides to mete out his own brand of justice, even though the lines between the bad and the good have already been blurred. Famed Italian director Sergio Corbucci helmed this bleak, stylish, and violent spaghetti western, which features a score from Ennio Morricone. (Rotten Tomatoes)
