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.

The estate of Jean-Michel Charlier, co-creator and original writer of the Blueberry comic book series, found the film's changes to the plot and tone (especially the shamanism storyline) so appalling that they made a request to have Charlier's name removed from the credits. See more »

At the beginning of the end credits it says 'A Jan Kounen Session' instead of 'A Jan Kounen Film'. See more »
... although I see a lot of weak points in terms of narration. But these points didn't disturb me at the first vision, which happened to be in the place where it should be seen: a cinema. This movie is an experience as the french tag line mentioned: "l'expérience secrète". Don't expect a traditional western. It feels like it but isn't, because of the fact that the hero isn't one, and the final sequence just is at a thousand miles you've ever seen (you could compare it a bit to the final voyage in 2001 from Kubrick). Just let go and enjoy this sensory piece... Finally something daring and new.
Just give it a try, it's worth just for the pictures and the music.
