Great movie, 16 December 2007
Author: jacquespcoelho from Brazil

This is one of the greatest movies I remember from my teenager years. It was the talk of town. It used to run on the local theater for months on a roll and many people went to see it more than once, including me. For some reasons it became a classic of "western" right here in Brazil. Maybe even more than full-fledged American westerns. Giuliano Gemma, even though, Italian, become the poster-boy for an authentic American cowboy down here. The plot was very well written, good fist fights, great shoot-outs right on the beginning. The soundtrack is just amazing and stands up by itself as a classic. Pay attention to the opening credits, you can have a lot of fun just by doing that. It could have been even better if had been shot in American old western soil, such as "Monument Valley". It's kind of intriguing, how italians, the creators of pasta, could make such awesome western movies and New York is the best place in the world to eat Italian food. How can these two countries can be so far and so close at the same time? It wracks my brain.
