Money always has a master. When it unexpectedly falls ‘out of the sky’ you have to be especially careful, especially cautious. Has Providence shown mercy? Who might be a guest? Who will sway? What are the consequences? There’s a good chance you’ll pay with your head. They’ll unscrew it in a jiffy. They’ll unscrew it in no time. And they won’t put it back on. In youth, ‘ducats’ attract glitter, of course, much brighter. But even at sunset, in decrepit years, can drive one crazy, rouse one’s soul. Possibilities, possibilities, open up for every need. And this, and that, and all at once the embodiment of fantasy… Ehhh! And now I’m going to be straying from the ruble…
“Old Henry” – that’s about the same Old Henry who finds a bag full of banknote coins. What to do? He’s just a miserable farmer. Thin and scrawny. With his son day in and day out digging the earth, removing stones from the soil. It’s 1905. America is in the process of establishing the institutions of statehood. And suddenly, a treasure… Is it good luck?
A movie, from a long-forgotten pirate movie, perhaps. When corsairs of the seas, desperate heads, went boarding in lust for profit. And the devil himself was not afraid of them. Faces twisted in anticipation of the coming storm in the rivalry. Here it comes. Now, now. Let’s fight each other in hand-to-hand. Kill! Stab! I’ll shoot you! You’re a dead man! You’re dead! A fierce gang in the field. For money, for gold doubloons, they’ll kill their mother. A man’s life isn’t worth a penny. If it’s a map with buried treasure, they’ll gut it. Gutted clean.
The Wild West is the same pirates, but on the plains. On land, not among the waves, they have their fun. Westerns have lavishly praised the poetics of these guys’ everyday lives. Always on horseback, always in the saddle. Dirty, stinky, but who would dare mock seeing a colt in a belt holster? It’s more expensive for yourself. Bow your head. Nod. Answer when you’re asked.
Here we are now, the Three Horsemen of the Apocalypse have arrived on the porch uninvited. Tell us, Henry! Tell us, dearie… Where and what?
A dashing action movie awaits the viewer. A Western, the likes of which there are few in these times. You can’t find a movie like that these days. At first glance, it looks like a cheap piece of work, and the price is three kopecks. But no. Wrong. In Venice, the Golden Lion is the prize. So the jury assessed the idea, the acting and the environment of the place and events with the scenery of that time. Is it necessary to pour water on this mill additionally? Doesn’t the film rightly deserve to be famous? Not at all. An intriguing thriller offered by the director. And the roles of the performers, a shining embellishment of the hour and a half narrative. It is impossible not to fall in love with this film. It would be a shame to miss it.
