A blistering 50-year-old masterpiece of the Spaghetti Western genre that never received a theatrical release in North America, Django director Sergio Corbucci’s THE GREAT SILENCE (Il grande silenzio) has been unearthed, restored, and remastered by FM Classics and Film Movement, and comes to The Frida July 25 – 28!

Klaus Kinski (Aguirre, The Wrath of God) and Jean-Louis Trintignant (Amour) star as a vicious bounty hunter and a mute gunslinger who lock horns in the snowy mountains of Utah during the Great Blizzard of 1899. Inspired by the then-recent deaths of Che Guevara and Malcolm X, the film is notable for its explicitly radical politics and dark tone, matched by an atypical snowbound setting and beautifully haunting score by Ennio Morricone.

The most influential Western you’ve never seen, The Great Silence has been an inspiration to filmmakers – notably, Quentin Tarantino, who referenced the film’s wintery setting in 2015’s The Hateful Eight.

“Even 50 years later, The Great Silence stands majestically as both a blistering comment about its era and a creatively revisionist genre piece…the restoration is so crisp, the production looks like it was finished yesterday.” – Film Journal International

“Still hurts so good — half a century later.” – The Village Voice

“★★★★★. It’s been called ‘great’ and ‘Corbucci’s masterpiece.’ It just might be.” – Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
