Gian Maria Volonté,
Alledged wayward adolescent Louisiana gentleman Michael 'Mike' Blueberry is dumped by his family with a Wild West uncle. The brute's only 'motivation' is a stick. After a nearly fatal encounter in the brothel with Wallace 'Wally' Sebastian Blount, Mike is left for dead in the desert. A Chiricuahua (Apache) medicine man's family finds, nurses and initiates him. After the shaman's death, Mike returns and becomes the town's honest 'deputy' marshal. Gold fever strikes, with staged Indian brutalities to allow rivaling fiends to invade their sacred mountains. Written by
"Mike Blueberry," the sheriff of Palomito, who was educated in his youth by the Indians, trying to balance the two cultures to which they relate, but runs the risk of being marginalized by both the Indians and by whites. One day the murderer "Wally Blount," which seeks a treasure Indian city becomes a living hell, which brings "Blueberry" painful memories. With the help of the shaman "Runi", the "brother" with whom he grew up, "Mike" faces "Bloun" t. Furthermore, "Blueberry" must fight his own demons in the heart of the Sacred Mountains in order to free his spirit.
It's a film of great esoteric content, developed in an atmosphere of Best Western. Give a confrontation between the most superficial Western culture, ignorant, sickly, struggling against the eternal deep mysticism and ancient wisdom of indigenous Indian cultures of North America, reminding us of movies like "Dances with Wolves".
It is a difficult film to understand or assimilate, little action, although it contains varied and in perspective and very calculated .y only appeal to people interested, mystical experiences, related to Indian culture.
For other audiences less advanced in spiritual mysticism usually a very boring movie, because it develops slowly within the parameters that we understand the normal range with the typical Western plot, but spacing and mixed with an original symbolism of the Indians.
It's a film at least original, which focuses too much on domestic travel caused by the consumption of peyote. It has a slow pace that many viewers may not like to be a western, besides the fact that the protagonist does not fire any shots (something unheard of in this genre), just does not deserve to be despised, Its origin is a comic but unless aesthetics in photography and drawings of certain scenes, there seems to come of it.
