The son of the legendary Django is out for revenge and ends up becoming a better man
A captivating and classic spaghetti western with a sense of morality
In spaghetti westerns, the dish of revenge is served very regularly and without hesitation, either hot or cold. And who better to avenge the death of Django, one of the most beloved characters of Italian cinema, than his own son? The predictable course of events, however, takes some unexpected turns: the gunslinger has pacifist doubts, he listens to a priest (played by Guy Madison, an icon of the American western), renounces killing and instead captures the culprit. But don’t worry: as ever, there is no shortage of brutal violence, one of the characteristic of the Italian western. Nevertheless, repentance is close at hand. The pure entertainment of this film hides a deeper message.
As a young boy Tracy, the son of Django, witnesses the killing of his father, and from that moment on all he can think of his revenge. He manages to track down the culprit, who is now tormenting the inhabitants of a small town. The local preacher, Reverend Fleming, convinces the boy not to murder his father’s killer and instead hand him over to the Law.
