If you know and love Kinski
17 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

First film as director of Tonino Ricci (1927-2014). And, it's not bad. The same year, 1969, Klaus Kinski performed in "Five for Hell" (1969)5 per l'inferno (original title). In both films, Kinski is a villain, SS Colonel Hans Mueller in "Five for Hell", and American Corporal Brian Haskins/Norman Carr in "War Fever", the difference being that in "War Fever" he's doing some good deeds, killing many Germans and dying as a hero, while in "Five for Hell" it's just the opposite, he's just a mean and perverse man, killing americans. In both, he is the same special, unique, enormously talented, crazy, Klaus Kinski. Unfortunately, Riz Ortolani's music, great in many other films, this time is not. The film is also known with the title "Salt in the Wound".
