A powerful story of revenge which I strongly recommend., 19 January 2002
I saw this film in France over 35 years ago. Powerful performances from Curd
Jurgens and especially Folco Lulli, enhanced by stunning desert scenery,
made an indelible impact. Folco Lulli pursues a slow and implacable act of
vengeance, leading the unsuspecting Jurgens further and further into the
desert. The simplicity of the story-line and the intensity of the
characterisation held me on the edge of my seat. The only comparable tension
was that of "Jaws".
At the end of the film everyone rushed out for ice-cream and cool drinks.
I MUST see it again!
