Skillful western from the east
9 April 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Loosely based on historical events and following the previous movie "Apachen", "Ulzana" stars Gojko Mitic again as the chief of the Mimbrero tribe. They have peacefully settled in Arizona, where they manage to make such a good harvest they can start selling fruit. This is a thorn in the side of local merchants who quickly find a corrupt army officer named Burton to start some trouble, causing the native Americans to leave their reservation. Burton keeps an eye on Ulzana's beautiful Mexican wife Leona (Renate Blume) to make things more complicated. Yes, you guess right: Ulzana doesn't find that funny ;-). Shot in Uzbekistan (!), this is a western produced 1973 by the DEFA which had gained several years of experience with westerns by then. And it shows. "Ulzana" is a real joy with all ingredients for 90 entertaining minutes. I'd like to recommend it also to those among you who know the kind of westerns shot in Spain, but haven't checked out East German productions before.
