Spanish/Italian co-production realized in Paella/Spaghetti Western style , being well directed by Mario Camus
18 August 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This Paella or Chorizo western is set in Andalucia , Spain, at the end of the 19th century, and performed by Terence Hill as a gunfighter called Marco . Marco along with his brother Jacobo (Mario Pardo) are contracted by evil land lord Don Antonio (Fernando Rey) and his son Ramon (Maximo Valverde) to kill a communist who's planning to begin a revolution on the countryside against abusers y exploiters who horribly mistreat the laborers in an Andalucian community . Meanwhile , Marco rests at an inn run by a pretty hostess (gorgeous Maria Gracia Buzzela) . Then , there takes place an+ extraordinary event , the metamorphosis of Marco , a hired gunslinger turned into a good man and defender of oppressed and hapless.

This enjoyable movie contains a relentless criticism to high class and barons land who carry out human exploitation and attacks against local oppressed and impoverished peasants . At the same time , there is a brief observation on the rural life during last years of the 19th century in Andalucia . This meaty Paella/Spaghetti Western contains an interesting but well known plot , violence , shoot'em up and results to be quite entertaining , though drags at times , balancing in ups and downs . Above average Spaghetti/Paella Western is proceeded in violent style in which the bad guys are the local landlord and aristocrat , Fernando Rey , his son Maximo Valverde , hoodlums as Manuel De Blas and good guys as Terence Hill , William Layton , Manuel Alexandre , among others . The film packs violence , shootouts , high body-count , a merciless vengeance and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . It's a thrilling western with breathtaking confrontation between the protagonist Terence Hill against the heartless Fernando Rey and his son Maximo Valverde and his underlings who cause abuse and rampage on villagers . Terence Hill is fine , he ravages the screen , hit and run and kills . This movie is a lot of fun to watch . It's an agreeable story with a touch of peculiarity , some particular characters, and an amazing music score . The picture is a tale of justice as a man finds a community is being exploited and changes his mind as he helps disadvantaged and unhappy people as well as a implacable vendetta when his brother is killed . The basic plot is typical spaghetti western fare , but what makes this movie stand out is its style . This is an exciting film, plenty action , thrills, fights , gun-down and breathtaking outdoors from Andalucia , Sevilla and Huelva . In the picture appears Paella/Spaghetti habitual secondaries playing brief interventions such as Chris Huerta, Rafael Sanchez Polack , Jose Luis Martin and of course , the always great Fernando Rey , Luis Buñuel's usual actor . The notorious Spaghetti actor , Terence Hill is good in his usual tough role , as a close-mouthed gunman . The pic is well starred by Mario Girotti or Terence Hill , he began playing secondary roles into typical examples of popular Italian films of the late 50s as sword and sandal epics, comedies, adventures and was with spaghetti westerns that renamed achieved worldwide stardom . His acting is often accused of being wooden, but in many manners is ideally suited to playing the steely-faced gunslinger synonymous with the genre . 1976 Hollywood called and he appeared in March or die (1977) with Gene Hackman and starred in Mister Billion (1977) with Valerie Perrine. Since then he has concentrated on action/adventure films starring himself and often working with long time partner Bud Spencer. He appeared in 18 films with frequent co-star Bud Spencer , both of whom starred Spaghetti , Fagioli Western , comedy ,adventure and police stories .

Atmospheric though worn-out cinematography by Roberto Gerardi , being necessary a right remastering . The motion picture was well directed by Mario Camus .During various decades he touched styles varying from romantic comedies and musicals to splendid adaptations from famous novels, as is the case of the prestigious TV series "Fortunata y Jacinta" (1979) . In 1983 he was given the 'Medalla Oro De las Bellas Artes' (Arts Gold Medal), and one year later he prepared his most successful work both with public and critic : Los Santos Inocentes (1984), an adaptation from the novel by Miguel Delibes. Mario is an expert on interesting dramas as proved in ¨ The house of Bernarda Alba¨ , ¨La Colmena¨ which won the Golden Bear Award at the Berlin Film Festival , ¨The days of the past ¨ and many others . Rating : Acceptablea and passable ; it's an agreeable film though sometimes slow-moving . Essential and indispensable watching for Terence Hill fans .
