Its interesting to note that the other review under this listing likewise is a lower rating. This same title but another listing (Amazon?!?) all has 5 star ratings!
The main reason I wanted to add my review is to note how SLOW this movie feels. Its like watching paint dry . . . Yes its a great artsy-fartsy piece with dramatic build up of scenes and wonder about how the story will unfold or conclude. And we are not whose who must have action-action-ACTION in order to stick thru a movie. However we weren't prepared for seeing a western treated like a director's wet dream. The slowness of this movie is nothing like that of High Noon or even The Magnificent Seven which builds momentum as the story unfolds. The plot actually plods along - in between minute long close ups of actor's eyes.
If you enjoy such film fest type offerings, this is for you. We would rather watch other old classic westerns. About the only reason we stayed with this movie to the end was to find out the ending - so-so at that.

This is sometimes a typical spaghetti western and other times very different. There are many long moments without dialogue which attempts to increase the drama level that sometimes works. It's a pretty good movie, definitely worth seeing, but I wouldn't take the time to watch it again. I did enjoy seeing Charles, Henry, and Jason together.
