A nice spaghetti-western parody
8 June 1999 | by bazzySee all my reviews

Thinking at the spaghetti-western movies of the sixties and seventies, this is the best parody of them all. Here we see how Bruno Bozzetto gets rid of all the most common characters of a western movie : good guys, bad guys, country ranch girls, federal army, native indian tribes, saloon pianists, cows, horses, and so on. Even the technique used for the cartoons (very "crappy", compared to the superb one we see in Walt Disney movies) seems to be done for making the parody even stronger. The most "normal" detail of the movie is the soundtrack, which seems to be composed by a fan of Ennio Morricone. The whole work is very good, funny from the main titles to the end quotes.
