Description: On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski) 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) stands between the innocent refuges and the greed and corruption that the bounty hunters represent. But, in this harsh, brutal world, the lines between right and wrong are not always clear and good does not always triumph.

If once there was justification for the violence committed across the film’s snow-blanketed Utah, now men embrace violence simply for the pleasure of it—leaving no morally superior side when the government dispatches bounty hunters to clean up the frontier.

"23.12. Toinen katselukerta. Käyttäjä The Wolf huomautti omassa elokuvapäiväkirjassaan, että tämä olisi Elisa Viihteen valikoimissa, mistä piti ottaa kaikki ilo irti joulun pyhinä vanhemmilla vieraillessa. Tylyistä tylyintä spagua edelleenkin."

"Seen for the first time a long long time ago (i was a child). Probably the darkest and most nihilistic western ever made. AWESOME! 9,5/10"
