Relationships: healthy, loving, sick and inexistent.
28 May 2007 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film is about relationships, healthy, loving, sick, and about those who are incapable of any. Gregory Peck seems to have stepped right out of "The Gunfighter" if it would not be for the accent. When he tells Billy (Desi Arnaz Jr, excellent) what Ecclesiastes says about man not being alone he is telling the whole point of the film. Jack Warden as the Sheriff is a hard man who cannot relate to anyone. David Huddleston and John Pearce have sick relationships with their wives. Sian Barbara Allen has a great performance as the stuttering woman who lives like a slave of her husband. About halfway through the film the scenery looks like New Mexico, but then you realize the difference between the Israeli and the American desert. The Israeli scenery brings a type of beauty, not the real environment, but very appropriate for the film's mood somehow reminding of the scenery in "Garden of Evil" (1954). A film worth seeing.
