De Allerlaatste Keuze van Koolhoven in Cinema OT301

Dinsdag 15 maart, aanvang 20:30

Django (1966) by Sergio Corbucci (the original uncut version, in Italian)

Keoma (1976) by Enzo G. Castellari

Django is an early spaghetti western and Keoma was one of the last ones.

The violent and nasty Django will be shown in it's uncut original (Italian spoken) version. This film by ‘The Other Sergio' (Sergio Corbucci) is perhaps even more representative for the genre than Sergio Leone's westerns. It made Franco Nero a superstar in Europe and it had a profound impact on the Italian movie industry. It spawned more than 30 unofficial sequels (some actually quite interesting) that had nothing to do with the original film. Nero returned years after the Italo-western hype in the quasi-official sequel in '87, which bombed.

In many countries Keoma was promoted as Django Rides Again, but it is a completely different film. Shot by the poor man's Peckinpah Enzo G. Castellari, this baroque, weird and pulpy western has shades of - don't be startled - Peckinpah, Bergman, Pasolini, Shakespeare and The Bible.
