Spaghetti western classic "The Great Silence" ("Il Grande Silenzio")
Sergio Corbucci (1927-1990) was an Italian director of violent and stylish spaghetti westerns, including the original DJANGO (1966), which spawned one official sequel and over 30 unofficial ones. (Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED opens in December.) But on Sat., Nov. 3 the Cleveland Cinematheque will show a different Corbucci classic -- one that filmmaker Alex Cox (REPO MAN) has called "the greatest spaghetti western ever made." THE GREAT SILENCE stars Klaus Kinski (AGUIRRE, FITZCARRALDO, NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE) as Loco, a vicious bounty hunter, and Jean-Louis Trintignant (MY NIGHT AT MAUD'S, THE CONFORMIST) as Silence, a mute gunslinger who hates bounty hunters. The two lock horns in the snowy mountains of Utah in the late 1800s, with a group of persecuted Mormons in the middle. The movie has music by Ennio Morricone. Unavailable on film in the U.S., THE GREAT SILENCE will be projected in an archival 35mm color print from Europe that is temporarily in North America. English-dubbed version. 105 min.
NOTE: $8 tickets for those age 25 & under (if seats are available) will go on sale at the Cinematheque box office starting at 4:30 pm on Nov. 3. Cash/check only.
