Set in 1989 amongst the snowy mountains of Utah, The Great Silence is one of the darkest and most unforgiving tales of vengeance violence.
Jean-Louis Trintignant stars as Silence, a mute gunfighter who comes up against a gang of vicious bounty killers who are massacring innocent people in order to collect loot and appease the caprice of the corrupt banker ruling the area, Henry Pollicut (Luigi Pistilli).
Their sadistic, self-satisfied leader is Loco (Klaus Kinski).
Widowed Pauline Middleton (Vonetta McGee) – whose husband was gunned down by Loco – calls on Silence (who has the reputation of being the fastest and deadliest shot in all of Utah) to affect justice and avenge the death of her husband.
The conclusion to The Great Silence is one of the most memorable, emotionally striking, and truly surprising finales in the Western genre.
Ennio Morricone provides one of his best scores.
