THE GREAT SILENCE (Il Grande Silenzio) is a movie cowritten and directed by Sergio Corbucci in 1968. Superb musical score by Ennio Morricone.
Utah, 1898. A bunch of bounty hunters, lead by Klaus -Loco- Kinski, are hunting down a group of mormons who've been forced to become outlaws in order to survive the natural elements.

One of the best spaghetti westerns ever shot. Masterpiece.
