About Dario Argento. The French version, which must be considered as the original version, doesn't mention Argento in the credits.

For me one of the best SWs.

If I remember correctly, in the interview on the German DVD Hossein says that Argento had nothing to do with it.

Personally I love it. It is pure visual cinema with minimal reliance on dialogue. Alex Cox says in his review that he wishes even some of this very sparse dialogue would be removed which would almost render it literally speechless. In any case it should really be watched in its original French, rather than English or Italian, for the times when speaking does sporadically occur.
A really, really good point.

I finally saw this, courtesy of CJ and his DVD burner. The dialogue is, as you suggest, almost entirely superfluous. The lack of plot allows the characters to take their time doing things, mostly looking at each other. This is a film that's got gaze! It really needs a Morricone score, however.

Oh, and in case anyone still needs to be convinced, this is definitely NOT Leone:

I just watched this excellent 30 minute interview again last night. Hossein says that he might perhaps have given a copy of the finished script to Argento because he was also Leone's friend, but then noted that Argento doesn't understand French at all so would not have been able to read it in any case. Hossein also pointed out that the correct French credits (with the black and white rather than Italian sepia background of the riders) does not even mention Argento's name - the German disc has a nice comparison of both credit sequences.

On a related note, the original French version begins and ends in black & white. Out of curiosity, has the black & white ending also been changed to sepia in the Italian version or left as is?

I actually really like the score. It's by Robert Hossein's father, André Hossein, who it seems did the scores for many of his son's works.

The DVDr I have has sepia, I think its from the SPO Japanese DVD. I don't mind the score at all.

Thanks for letting me know. The sepia looks quite nice actually, but I wonder why they changed it from the original black & white in the first place  Huh

I agree about Cemetery without crosses being one of the greatest SWs. I have really enjoyed watching it, especially its surreal atmosphere. However, I must say that I found it quite slow in general.

The soundtrack is also great.

And the hotel clerk is definitely Chris Huerta.

7.5/10

Still, for one of the best SWs around 7.5/10 does seem kinda low...

Maybe so, but that is just MY view. I would have given the movie a higher mark if I did not find it sooooooo slooooooow.

And I am an avid SW fan.  Cool

I tried searching everywhere for a DVD of this film "Cemetery Without Crosses" and all of my efforts came to a zilch. Is there any place, where I can buy and preferably a re-mastered DVD version of the film? Thanks for the pointers.
