Once upon a time in the West, by Sergio Leone, not to be missed on Sunday evening

Considered “an American national treasure”, the cult western returns to W9.

A mysterious man, who we only know still plays the harmonica, tirelessly pursues Frank, an unscrupulous brute, without apparent reason. Frank covets the lands of a family he massacred, but whose mistress of the place (Claudia Cardinale), who remained alive, is determined to defend herself. Once upon a Time in the West is one of the Western master’s most successful films. Sergio Leone demonstrates all his sense of rhythm and an irreproachable casting choice with Charles Bronson and Henry Fonda. Add to that a grandiose decor and the superb music ofEnnio Morricone, you will not be disappointed, even if you have already seen and reviewed it.

It has also been in the US National Archives since 2009, rightly considered a masterpiece, a cultural treasure to be preserved and made known to all generations of viewers. He returns this Sunday evening on W9, from 9:05 p.m. and it would be a shame to skip (him).
