Louis Bluver's Arthouse Revisited
The Great Silence
Sergio Corbucci, Italy/France, 1968, 105 min.
On an unforgiving, snow-swept frontier, a group of
bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski, Nosferatu)
prey on a band of persecuted outlaws who have taken to the hills. As the price
on each head is collected one-by-one, only a mute gunslinger named Silence
(Jean-Louis Trintignant, The Conformist) stands between the innocent
refugees and the greed and corruption that the bounty hunters represent. But,
in this harsh, brutal world, the lines between right and wrong aren't always
clear and good doesn't always triumph.
This series is presented through the generous support of Louis Bluver.
