A fascinating western, unique realization of Marlon Brando
New 4K restoration
Three American mobsters rob a bank in a Mexican village before being chased by local police. The first is shot, while the other two, Rio and Dad Longworth, manage to escape. Having gone to seek help, Longworth abandons his comrade and scurries off with the loot. Surrounded on all sides, Rio is arrested. When he manages to escape, he has only one idea in mind: to take revenge on his former sidekick...
Project successively entrusted to Sam Peckinpah (script) then to Stanley Kubrick (directing), La Vengeance aux deux visages will ultimately be Marlon Brando's only achievement. He delivers an introspective Western of great visual beauty, which favors a form of contained but no less explosive violence. The work of a true author, to be contemplated for the first time in its 4K restoration carried out by Universal Studios and The Film Foundation in consultation with Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg!
