"FOR ME, THE ULTIMATE WESTERN IS THAT OF SERGIO CORBUCCI." QUENTIN TARANTINO
A mysteriousman arrives in a small town, dragging a muddy coffin behind him. Named Django, this stranger saves the life of a young woman and thus finds himself thrown into the heart of a war between Mexican revolutionaries and a band of sadistic racists led by a fanatic, Major Jackson. Despite the surrounding chaos, Django puts his plan into action: revenge, by pitting enemy against enemy...
Alongside Sergio Leone's "dollar trilogy", Django is an emblem of Italian western, immortalized by its theme sung by Rocky Roberts and the masterful interpretation of Franco Nero as a ruthless avenger. With bewildering violence, Corbucci's staging mixes social realism, absurd humor and high-flying graphic spectacle. Claimed influence of Quentin Tarantino for his Django Unchained , this crazy and enjoyable western is available in its full version and for the first time on Blu-ray™ in its sublime 4K restoration (also on DVD)!
