The Great Silence
On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski Nosferatu, For a Few Dollars More) 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 The Conformist) 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 aren't always clear and good doesn't always triumph. Featuring superb photography and a haunting score from maestro Ennio Morricone, director Sergio Corbucci's bleak, brilliant and violent vision of an immoral, honorless west is widely considered to be among the very best and most influential Euro-Westerns ever made.

"The greatest spaghetti Western ever made."- Alex Cox, director of Sid & Nancy and Repo Man

"Corbucci (1927-90) may be Sergio Leones only rival as the maestro of Italian westerns, and The Great Silence, which had its belated theatrical opening last spring, is arguably his masterpiece  stylized, subversive and superbly perverse, not least in its casting, mise-en-scène and Ennio Morricones typically eccentric score." - J Hoberman, New York Times

"A gorgeous and bleak antithesis to what Hollywood was doing at the time, Sergio Corbuccis The Great Silence is one of the all-time great Italian westerns, and truly one of the best westerns ever made. - David J. Moore, The Action Elite

"...the director at his most artful and daring." - Kyle Anderson, Nerdist News

"Brutal, bleakly beautiful spaghetti Western filmed on stark locations in the Dolomites, with one of the most uncompromising and unforgettable finales ever filmed." - Leonard Maltin
