A (funny) homage to High Noon
11 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

High noon had such an impact here on Brazil that motivated the production of this (aparently) spoof. Kid Bolha is everything that Will Kane isn't, coward, chickenhearted and with few regard for himself. But he accidentally manages to put the nefarious Jesse Gordon in jail, and becomes the Sheriff. And when Jesse Gordon is back in town, he have to face him again, even if he can't stand the idea of it. Oscarito plays with all the situations Gary Cooper's character had to endure and delivers not a parody but an homage to the proud Marshall. Plus he's not the only good reason to see this movie, Grande Otelo as Ciscocada have his moments as Kid Bolha's deputy. And José Lewgoy as Jesse Gordon deliver his usual "I'm the born rotten villain" performance. During many years this movie was considered almost as an insult to High Noon by western fans but, gradually, even those had to admit that it's a movie with a light of it's own, and a big one. One last thing, in Brazil 'High Noon' is called 'Matar ou Morrer' (To Kill or Die), and 'Matar ou Correr' means 'To Kill or Run'.
