While Django remains the erratic Corbucci's best picture, this slightly later spaghetti Western does well by an inventive set-up, which has unusually heavy snowfalls on the US-Mexican border bringing various outlawis down from the mountains, where Kinski's ruthless bounty hunter is waiting for them. Trintignant is 'Silenzio', the mute gunfighter determined to stop the carnage, and between the bullets there's engaging stuff from the two stars and an unmistakable chill in the air.
