Three men wearing long coats settle down in a deserted station while a widowed farmer and his three children wait for a young woman coming from New Orleans to replace their dead mother. A girl who wants a new life in the West, an unknown sharpshooter and harmonica player, an outlaw-philosopher with a moustache, a cold and methodical killer with steely eyes and a lame, unscrupulous builder of railways are the main characters in this complex mystery whose strands are cleverly mingled with the famous music by Ennio Morricone.

Sergio Leone

Italian film director born in 1929. The son of the director Roberto Roberti, he started in cinema as second crew director in Hollywood co-productions such as Helen of Troy. He completed The Last Days of Pompeii, replacing Mario Bonnard who had fallen ill. In 1961 he signed the epic The Colossus of Rhodes and then started the 'dollar trilogy' in 1964 with A Fistful of Dollars, followed by For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1967). His name has since been closely linked with what have been called spaghetti westerns. His aesthetic mannerism and stylised treatment reached an epitome in Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). Once upon a Time … the Revolution (1971) was not a success with the public and was followed by ten years of silence. Leone made his last film, Once Upon a Time in America, in 1984. It was a panorama of New York in the 1920s. He died in Rome in 1989.
