Sergio Corbucci’s The Great Silence Getting A Masters Of Cinema Release

One of the best and most influential Westerns ever made getting a limited edition Blu-ray release

Once again Eureka Entertainment is set to deliver another fantastic  film that many call a masterpiece . When they’ll release Sergio Corbucci’s Western, The Great Silence on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK . A 2K restoration in a Limited Edition Set as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in November .

On an unforgiving, snow-swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski) prey on a band of persecuted outlaws who have taken to the hills. Only a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Trintignant) stands between the innocent refugees and the corrupt killers. But, in this harsh, brutal world, the lines between right and wrong are not always clear, and good does not always triumph.

Featuring superb photography and a haunting score from maestro Ennio Morricone, director Sergio Corbucci’s bleak, brilliant and violent vision of an immoral, honour-less West, is widely considered to be among the best and most influential Westerns ever made.
