When violent conflict breaks out between greedy railroaders and a tribe of Mescalero Apaches, only two men, destined to be blood brothers, can prevent all-out war: chief's son Winnetou and German engineer Old Shatterhand.
Second installation in this agreeable reboot of the classic series about Winnetou and Shatterhand
In this second outing of the German remake , Our beloved protagonists get forced to search for a fabulous treasure , previously pursued by the great scientist and explorer Von Humbolt and the famous conqueror Hernan Cortés . Evil Mexican bandits encounter a map in Ti juana , led by El Mas Loco : Fari Yardim , attack the Apache tribe and kidnap Shatterhand : Wotan Wilke, Winnetou :Nik Xhelilaj and Nscho tschi : Larios . They are coerced to go to a far territory, in the Sílver Sea , where allegedly is the valuable treasure. At the end takes place some powerful scenes , when at an underwater treasure grotto our friends confront the ominous cutthroats to take the precious Indian jewels.
This is a likeable return to Winnetou and Old Shatterhand series , two unforgettable roles written by bestselling author Karl May .It stars Wotan Wilke as Shatterhand , this time well shaved, along with his íntimate friend Winnetou finely performed by Nik Xhelilaj. Here , again , it takes place the emotive encounter between two unforgettable characters , Winnetou and Old Shatterhand , along with the beautiful Indian Tschi played by Iazua Larios , who results to be Winnetou sister , Shaman of Apache tribe and Shatterhand's girlfriend . Shimmering and brilliant Western which packs noisy action , riding pursuits , crossfire , violence and wonderful outdoors from Yugoslavia. The picture contains an evocative and glimmer photography shot on location in similar landscapes and lagoon where was filmed the previous renditíon in 1962 by Harald Reinl with Pierre Brice , Lex Barker and the recently deceased Karin Dor. Lavishly produced by Rat Pack , actor/producer Christian Becker and the elderly production company Rialto and its producer Wendlandt. This trilogy about Winnetou is nicely intérpreted by Nik SHelilaj who bears a certain resemblance to deceased Pierre Brice. THis attractive saga profits itself from gorgeous outdoors , a nostalgic feeling and large-than-life roles. IT displays a colorful and shimmering cinematography. As well as a sensitive and catching musical score , adding the vintage Ballad of the original series titled Winnetou melody, composed by Martín Bottcher. The motion picture was professionally made by Philipp Stolzl who has directed this recient trilogy remake about Winnetou and Shatterhand. Philipp previously directed other hits as Erased ,Goethe, Nordwand and his greatest success The Physician.
