A digital restoration of Sergio Corbucci's gritty Spaghetti Western masterpiece for its 50th anniversary!
THE GREAT SILENCE (1968): Set in an unforgiving, snow-swept frontier, Klaus Kinski stars as the sadistic leader of a group of bounty hunters who have the run of a small isolated town. When a woman (Vonetta McGee) seeks revenge against the gang for her husband’s murder, she hires a mute gunslinger (Jean-Louis Trintignant) with a penchant for shooting off the thumbs of his opponents. Known only as “Silence”, the gunslinger is forced to face off against Kinski and his ruthless gang while a blizzard descends on the town. Featuring excellent cinematography, and an amazing score by maestro Ennio Morricone.
