I'm french and i'm sure Leone would be proud of me. Particulary concerning the movie that english call "A fistful of dynamite"
Indeed, France is the only country that called it "once upon a time...the revoltution", as Leone wished it!!!
He ofently said that the american title was so ridiculous...

Other thing: france, in opposite from America, doesn't cut this wonderful flash back which is for me the greatest part of this movie!!!

what a patriotic post!

Theres no doubt that continental europe has received Leone's films better than any other area of the world.

Lewis Hawk ur right to point out Once Upon a Time in the Revolution title for DYS.

Also, OUATITW was played in a Paris theatre for about two years consistently i think.
Most of Leone's original cuts to his films remained intact in France.

Compared to the despicable treatment of Leone by the Uk and in particular the USA over OUATIA, France should be proud.

Hat's off to the French! They show, and always have, total respect for film and film go-er's!  Cool

Reminds me of the time when Bush met our queen and said ' I'd like to be a monarch' and the queen said no because the US wasn't a monarchy. 'Well an emperor then' says George.  'No', says the queen, 'you have to come from an empire to be Emperor'.  'What can I be then?' asked Bush.  'Well you're from a country ....'

plus a wonderfull sequence in Monument valley, don't forget it.

America has some of the greatest filmakers ever... in france, we don't have so much: truffaut (who's dead), Renoir (wh'os dead), jeunet, klapish... i can't think to anyone else!

In France we have Meliès (dead), who made the first science fiction movie, and who is consider as the inventor of the special effects... Tongue

let's hope that the few french "filmakers" who are on this web board will soon become the new truffaut/melies/jeunet or anyone you like.
