Watched this movie today in the awful p&S version, dubbed in english. Sorry but I don't make very much of it. Days of Anger (which is "very" similar) is better and (have to regretfully admit that) Gemma comes up better than Law (whom, I think, wasn't very well set up by the hair-do dept. and, expecially, the wardrobe): which is strange as I think the american actor was better fitted for the part of a very young man. But you sense continuously here that the director is uncertain whether to let him play a boy or an adult: a doubt that Valerii didn't have. About the voice, I thought during the watching that, if it was his own, that explained why he didn't have much of a career in spite of his looks. That also should be a lesson to english-speaking wievers of SW: You can be assured that over here even the worse SW's were served grandly as to the choice of voices.
 
The main fault with the movie lies (i made the same criticism for other SW's) in the stretching out of some plot devices: he saves him who saves him who saves him who...). A shorter lenght would have served the movie better.

Morricone's main theme is good (as it always was in his westerns) and also the theme serving the campesinos getting ready for war is just under par. But the rest  is forgettable: the piano tune heard in the bar is the same used in FFDM (as already said) with just some variation.
No, this movie doesn't belong in my top ten non-Leone SW though I'm curious to watch it in a decent format and with the original dubbing.

DRAH is a great SW but it drags in the second part.

titoli get a decent copy, the P&S really sucks and its not fair to judge it from that copy.

Thought the same when I first viewed on my bad pan and scan. saw a nicer widescreen copy on television and thought more highly of it.

To me the main theme is good but their are far better songs in the film. They just are not used correctly.
Probably the best song in the film is "Mystic and severe" which plays when LVC rescues Law from his incomplete burial. Sadly that particular piece of music is only used once.

Mystic and Severe is a cool song. It's on my CD. There's a song on there that I didn't hear in the film, it's lyrical and on the CD it's titled Anger and Sorrow.
