A war between families comes to a head when a man is lynched in front of his wife (played by Michéle Mercier). Only an old beau (Robert Hossein) will help in her bitter fight for frontier justice. A Spaghetti Western from a Frenchman, writer-director-star Hossein offers up a violent, but not gory, a poetic, but not pretentious, 1969 film that emerges as a landmark of the genre. Try and guess which scene was directed by Sergio Leone!
