Some things may not be spoken of - things from the past - from long ago. But this does not mean you can ever forget them. There are things that can never be forgotten.

Some people have compared this movie to The Great Silence, which is quite a good movie, whereas this one excels in story and production values. The Great Silence is set in similar landscapes but this Western's location is stunningly beautiful and wonderfully filmed. The acting is quite simply brilliant and the story is extremely good. Though the story starts off quite slowly, it quietly builds into a quality revenge movie with a bit of a difference, as you will see. It has huge emotional impact and I would put this up there with Shane, High Noon & The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I am telling it how it is - just watch and see. Hollywood will remake this, I am certain but it will never be anywhere near as good. Even the soundtrack is excellent and used to good effect in one certain scene, which may or may not work for you (you'll know what I mean when you watch it). Quite simply a magnificent German movie achievement. A deserved 10/10. I loved it. My favorite Western in years.
