Great spaguetti, in the snow of Utah, with the hero killing bounty hunters, because in its relativisn, good is the poor ans straving bandit and evil is the bounty hunter. Kinski at its best. Great ending with a sense of poetic failure.

Taste of Cinema - 30 Greatest Westerns (30 movies items)

"This subversive Spaghetti western is one of the bleakest films ever made. Its hero is the brooding, silent type – literally. Having been made mute by a horrific attack on him as a child, he is now working as a bounty hunter, and is hired to protect a town beleaguered by the policies of the local banker and property owner. The finale is a downbeat, brutal conclusion to the film, and was said by the director Corbucci to be an allegory for the contemporary assassinations of Martin Luther King, Ma"

"03.08.2015 Edelleen tajuttoman tiukka spagu, jonka tunnari on paras, jos minulta kysytään. Morricone on säveltänyt lukuisia unohtumattomia soundeja, mutta jotenkin tämän melankolinen soundtrack tekee sen suurimman vaikutuksen. Tarinakin on sopivan kylmä ja maisemat karuja. Myös Kinski onnistuu oleman iljettävääkin iljettävämpi. Loppu on lohduton, niin kuin pitääkin."

"Directed by Sergio Corbucci BREATHTAKING non-conformist Spaghetti Western that breaks every standard tradition known to the genre, set in the Great 1898 Blizzard and knows the consequences of 'realistic' violent impulses. "

" Who said Sergio Leone is the only dude who could make great spaghetti westerns? Sergio Corbucci directs the hell out of Jean Louis Trintignant and Klaus Kinski, and the grand finale to this morbid movie is supernatural in its severity and intensity. "

"Jossain Yhdysvaltain luoteisosassa, keskellä vuoria ja metrin kinoksia vaikuttaa ihmisen laki vain paperilla. Käytännössä aavaa maisemaa hallitsee raha ja ahneus. Klaus Kinskin esittämä Tigrero ratsastaa hevosellaan kuin pahan ilman enkeli teilaten rikollisia ja jättää heidät pakastumaan kuin poronlihan, kunnes tulee aika noukkia saalis. Kinskin roolisuoritus on kaikessa jäätävyydessään nerokas. Tigrero on hahmo, joka suhtautuu ihmiselämän pyhyyteen kuin rikkaruohoon. Hänell"

"Armottomuudessaan ja karuudessaan vertaansa vailla oleva makaroniwesterni. Suuren hiljaisuuden maailma on julma paikka, paha voittaa hyvän ja oikeus on tuntematon asia. Teemaan sopien leffan lavastus on synkkää, talvi kylmä ja ruokapula läsnä. Näyttelijäsuoritukset osuvat nappiin, Morricone on jälleen demonisessa vauhdissa ja suuri loppukohtauskin jättää sanattomaksi. Mestarikamaahan tämä on."

"Bounty killers led by Loco prey on outlaws hiding out in the snowbound Nevada mountains. After Pauline's husband becomes Loco's latest victim, she hires a gunman for revenge; Silence, mute since his throat was cut as a child. I've always liked westerns and when I found this movie, not so long ago, I couldn't help myself loving this film. One absolutely lovely element of this film is that totally different milieu in the middle of snowy mountains. The second lovely element of the film is all the "
