Movie Info

A mysterious man trudges into town dragging a mud-stained coffin behind him. This man is Django (Franco Nero). After he saves Maria (Loredana Nusciak) from certain death, Django finds himself in the middle of a war between Mexican revolutionaries and a band of sadistic racists led by the fanatical Major Jackson (Eduardo Fajardo). In the face of overwhelming odds, Django has a plan: to exact revenge while pitting enemy against enemy. Featuring the addictively catchy title song performed by Rocky Roberts, "DJANGO" made an international star of Franco Nero, and along with Leone's Man With No Name trilogy, established the Spaghetti Western as an internationally popular genre.

Corbucci, who co-wrote the story, fashions an unrelentingly violent tale of rival gangs squeezing the life out of a muddy, bloody border town, reveling in the sadism of the genre.

Sergio Corbucci's Django is trapped between two states (literally Texas and Mexico, more metaphorically life and death) even as he brings a new (a)morality and sadism to a gunslinging figure of old America.

Sergio Corbucci's film is notable not only for the artistry of its construction, but also for the underlying anger that fuels its political agenda.

Flavorful enough to convince us that its multitude of sequels was no fluke.

East Bay Express

[VIDEO ESSAY] With an emphasis on gory brutality, Corbucci introduced a blood-soaked drifter closely modeled after Clint Eastwood's iconic character from Leone's films, but with one clear difference - Django drags a coffin with him everywhere he goes.

Audience Reviews for Django

½

An amazing B-movie Spaghetti Western that has prompted countless imitations and unofficial sequels (one official only), boasting an iconic sullen anti-hero who would greatly influence the Italian sub-genre. A muddy, violent classic that should not be missed.

The influence of this film is only partially why it is so great. This is one kick ass spaghetti western, directed by the other master of the genre, Sergio Corbucci. The look is great: muddy, dirty, and bleak. This, combined with the mood, tone, and atmosphere of the film perfectly match the disillusionment of the era in which is was made. It's hard not to compare this to Leone's work, but thankfully it's not a rip off. The basic concept is what sold me: a lone, enigmatic warrior dragging a coffin around. That's cool. Hell, it's so cool a video game called Gun Grave stole the concept (except in the game the coffin is strapped to the guy's back and not drug). This is good stuff all around, especially the story (even if it is simple), the music (not Morricone for once), and the camera work. Also, while it might be petty tame by today's standards, this is a particularly violent film for its time, and easily one of its most notable features. Watch this if you can find it- it's amazing.
