Tongue in cheek Western
5 September 2018 | by bpebSee all my reviews

No need to repeat tankjonah's useful review of the plot, but to enjoy the film one should realise that it is a tongue in cheek treatment of Western cliches, whether classical or spaghetti flavour, as implicit in the Italian title. The Spanish title "Brandy" is the nickname given to the flawed protagonist who will be given the responsibility of ridding Tombstone of its greedy and evil oligarchs led by George Rigaud (frequent villain in Spanish films of the 50s). It was Jose Luis Borau's first feature, graduate and young teacher at the newly established National Film School. It was commissioned by Antonio Manzanos from a story by Jose Mallorqui, who were both involved in the 50s popular western adventures of "El Coyote", although it underlines one of Borau's repeated motifs in his subsequent filmography, the importance of solidarity.
