A cool german western
7 February 2021 | by MarcoParzivalRochaSee all my reviews

In the immensity of the desert, three men dispute a suitcase full of money.

A German western spaghetti, in the form of homage to one of the greatest classics in cinema (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly).

It lacks the mystique and mood of the film that inspires it, but doesn't become a cheap copy, has its own personality and that's good.

It's interesting for fans of the genre, and can even be considered superior to some american westerns, when we talk about the score and the way it plays an important role in the story itself.

The cinematography is also pretty good, to be honest.

It's dark, with a lack of joy or hope, showing that excessive ambition and selfishness lead the human being to commit the most perverse acts.
