Captain Stanley: Now, suppose I told you there was a way to save your little brother Mikey from the noose. Suppose I gave you a horse and a gun. Suppose, Mr. Burns, I was to give both you and your young brother Mikey, here, a pardon. Suppose I said that I could give you the chance to expunge the guilt beneath which you so clearly labour.

Amazing film, but not one to watch with

This is an incredibly made film and has a compelling story line. However with many misanthropic characters, it's not the nicest film to watch.

A very good movie

Since I kept hearing so many good things about this flick, I was really curious to check it out. In the fact, the whole project sounded rather unlikely as it was written by Nick Cave (best known as the frontman of the rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and directed by John Hillcoat, a rather unknown director at the time who shot music videos for several bands including Nick Cave & the Bad... read more

Rural Australia in the late nineteenth century: Capt. Stanley and his men capture two of the four Burns brothers, Charlie and Mike. Their gang is held responsible for attacking the Hopkins farm, raping pregnant Mrs. Hopkins and murdering the whole family. Arthur Burns, the eldest brother and the gang's mastermind, remains at large has and has retreated to a mountain hideout. Capt. Stanley's proposition to Charlie is to gain pardon and - more importantly - save his beloved younger brother Mike from the gallows by finding and killing Arthur within nine days.

"21.10. Kaunista vääntöä niin temaattisesti kuin ulkoisestikin. Tunna saisi westernöidä enemmän kuin docventuroida."

"5.3, PC Burnsin rosvojoukkoa ja väkivaltaa ylipäätään kavahtava kaupunginväki päättää rangaista kiinnisaatua jäsentä samalla mitalla. Myös Guy Pearcen hahmo joutuu ristiriitaan porukkansa eläimellisyyden ja sen ajatuksen kanssa, että pitäisiköhän perseilyä rajoittaa. The Proposition kylvää ajatuksensiemenen oikeellisuuden pohtimisesta, muttei paria kohtaustasta lukuunottamatta vie tätä ajatusta juurikaan eteenpäin. Mukavan karu western tämä on, mutta harmillisesti Trip"
