Audience Reviews for Faccia a faccia (Face to Face)


Sollima's following film after his outstanding The Big Gundown is this gripping Western that features Milian and Volonté as two very different men who start to become like each other - even though Volonté's character seems to change too fast and not in a very convincing way.

Fantastic performances from Milian and Volante, good direction and solid score from Morricone. I have my issues with the plot, mostly Volante's character switching gears so suddenly, and becoming a rapist, heartless bastard just like that. This might benefit from a rewatch.
