The director of this movie is directed by Mr. Kurosawa as he overcame the Kurosawa side as copyright infringement and paid a large amount of reparation.

Naturally the Kurosawa Tast is oozing out thickly in the work

And the starring is never a guy but Charles who seems to have condensed astringent.Bronson This man is a former soldier or a man with a legend of a coal miner and a type actor not in modern Japanese actor

Although it is a story of a movie, there are no places that should be characterized by common talks There is also one side that can be taken as a hero etc. where directing appears while blowing harmonica.

I think that the charm of this work is to express men 's coolness.

I feel awesome attention to the sound effect afterwards

There is no dialogue at all for the beginning of an important movie BGM None Squeaky sound of windmill and the sound of wind This is a must-see

The steam locomotive SE is also superb

I got cluttered and cluttered together

It is recommended for people who like Mr. Kurosawa's drama

First of all, when you see this work, everyone will feel that "This work is different!" With only the first ten images.

The structure of the story itself of this work is very simple.
"Battle with railroad companies around the land of McBein" "Revenge play of a mysterious man Harmonica" That's all there is to it.
However, it is a work of the masters that makes a story of little less than 3 hours with this skeleton, and thinks that there is no useless scene as a piece.
A tense image created precisely overflows with certain traction, and will not let the audience be seen until the end.

As the railroad item symbolizes, then America tilts towards capitalism and the era of men who open up their lives with their own arms will tell the end.
That time was also a decline of Western play, and also an indication of a breakup with Leone's own western play.
It is reflected not only in harmonica living only for revenge, but also in characters such as Morton and McBain which continued dreaming in the future.

And music that was united with the image.
The battle ended from the wonderful "ballad of revenge" flowing in the battle scene, and the magnificent theme song flowing in the back made me feel moles from macaroni of Morricone

A masterpiece that leaves an intense impression like images, settings, music, the whole work as the requiem for Western play in the same way ...
Although it must be sure that it is, in the same Leone work is dispatched to the person of "nobody".
Evaluation is "very good close to the best".

Although it is a movie of familiar Leone and Morricone tags, he challenged straight in the Hollywood Western play that American symbolic capital, All America roque, cast symbolizes the Hollywood western play (moreover, Henry. Fonda is a villain) It is a work.
As such, it may be a work that should be talked about from casting and directing, but personally, I think that this work is a wonderful splendor among the many Morricone songs.
At the beginning, a quiet scene follows. About redundant. It sounds like a calm before the storm. And, as the Frank Clan appears, "Ballad of Revenge" ... It got numb. You can taste a sense of tension and shivering that is clumsy, a sinister and horrible thing will come!
After that Claudia. The theme songs on the scene where Cardinale sees the family 's dead body is beautiful, like a requiem.
Also, the tone of Charismes Bronson 's blowing harmonica also has a melancholy like the wind blowing through the wilderness, but at the same time, it was full of vulgar eeriness and tension.
Bronson and Henry at the end of the story From the fight of Fonda to the lyrical divorce schedule of Cardinale, the flow until the train arrives at the station is stunning. And that theme song that flows again ... Clearly, that is foul play! How grand, full of romance? It's as though the dazzling light has been plugged in from the sky.
But ... I am sorry for my favorite people, but the showtimes of 165 minutes are really tough. Although it is the true bone of the Leone movie which is stuffy like "tame" ... It gets tired before it gets excited. Besides, I was too conscious of Hollywood's western drama, and I was sorry that there was nothing like Macaroni's taste or absurdity.

Mumu, why is there western here? Continuing as a movie otaka determined by sunset gunman I have no choice but to say a word. I do not say much. Actually.
It is Leone, Fonda, Bronson, but it's not fun.
As usual Morricone music remains in my ears and there is a villain impact of Fonda called "American conscience of conscience in the West" but it depends too much on it. The impact of the protagonist is far from Eastwood's "outlaws". At best it is "normal".
The reminiscence interleaved to climb up is also good at the beginning, but I get irritated too much when I think it will be done many times. There will be more tough places!

Actually, I realized that the true value of this movie is the part of Leone's masterpiece as a master, the camera, etc. It is "not a story".
Looking at such a point of view, this is a masterpiece, it may be a masterpiece that is prominent in style and beauty and music. I am a story and a "gimmick" prejudiced, so I do not know yet now, but some people may be great masterpieces.
This neighborhood is an individual prejudice, so I can not treat it, but since I like the development filled with a trail of "sunset", this work is limited to "ordinary".
