Denn Sie Kennen Kein Erbarmen - Der Italowestern (2006, GER/FRA) C-87m. *** D: Hans-Jürgen Panitz, Peter Dollinger. Featuring interviews with Franco Nero, Tomas Milian, Pierre Brice, Gianni Garko, Damiano Damiani, Sergio Sollima, Sergio Leone, Sergio Corbucci, Lars Bloch, Robert Hossein. Interesting documentary on the spaghetti westerns of the 1960s and 1970s examines the beginnings of the genre, Leone's work and its influence, as well as other notable examples. A must for fans, although this is clearly incomplete (no mention of Hilton, Fulci, Carnimeo, other less important directors, no cross-references). Highlights: Rare interview footage of Sergio Leone and Sergio Corbucci (both dead since 1989 and 1990, respectively), Sollima's vivid memories. Made for German/French TV channel arte.
