The In Memoriam: Ennio Morricone programme at the Summer Art-kino will open with A Fistful of Dollars, the first instalment in the trilogy, on Tuesday, 4 August at 9 p.m.
The legendary film score composer Ennio Morricone, who has been rightfully deemed a legend, recently passed away and left behind his opus in over 500 films and TV shows for us to enjoy.
Morricone’s name immediately brings to mind Sergio Leone and vice versa. With this in mind, Art-kino decided to pay tribute to this cinematic great by showing the spaghetti-western trilogy commonly known as “The Man with No Name”, which includes the cult movies “A Fistful of Dollars”, “For a Few Dollars More” and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, along with its (non-canon) final instalment “Once Upon a Time in the West”, every Tuesday in August.
The original spaghetti-western and the first instalment in the Dollars Trilogy, as well as the first big-screen appearance of the so-called Man with No Name (C. Eastwood), who for reasons unknown arrives in San Miguel, a small town on the Mexican-American border, which is torn apart by the conflicts of the feuding Rojos and Baxter smuggling families. The Man plays their game and creates even greater internal strife by feeding confidential information to their rivals, kidnapping and killing. Taking on the demanding role of the movie’s main villain is Gian Maria Volontè, another world-renowned thespian.
