Film Movement Classics has given a stunning 2K Restoration for Sergio Corbucci‘s landmark spaghetti western, THE GREAT SILENCE, that will debut on Blu-ray and DVD on June 5th and it will be loaded with extras. Head inside for the details!

SYNOPSIS

This June, Film Movement Classics commemorates the landmark spaghetti western, THE GREAT SILENCE, with a stunning 50th Anniversary Restoration. Restored in 2K from original elements, the film, heralded as “one of the finest westerns ever[1],” directed by Sergio Corbucci and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Klaus Kinski will be available for cineastes everywhere in both Blu-ray and DVD formats. The loaded release also includes bonus features such as the rarely seen alternate endings, both original Italian and English language versions, the 1968 documentary featurette “Western, Italian Style” and more.

On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Kinski) prey on a band of persecuted outlaws who have taken to the hills. Only a mute gunslinger named Silence (Trintignant) stands between the innocent refugees and the corrupt bounty hunters. But, in this harsh, brutal world, the lines between right and wrong are not always clear, and good does not always triumph. Featuring superb photography and a haunting score from maestro Ennio Morricone, Corbucci’s bleak, brilliant and violent vision of an immoral, honorless West is widely considered to be among the best and most influential Westerns ever made.

BONUS FEATURES

  • Cox on Corbucci– Alex Cox pays tribute to the maestro
  • Western, Italian Style – 1968 documentary featurette
  • Two Alternate Endings
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • Original Italian and English language versions
