(773) MAN, PRIDE, VENGEANCE (1968) 'Carmen' as a Western
(773) MAN, PRIDE, VENGEANCE (1968) \'Carmen\' as a Western

Spaghetti Western Version of Prosper Merimee's 'Carmen'

original Italian title: L'UOMO L'ORGOGLIO LA VENDETTA [The Man, The Price, The Vengeance]
also known as VENDETTA OF CARMEN

director: Luigi Bazzoni
starring: Franco Nero Tina Aumont Klaus Kinski Alberto dell'Acqua Lee Burton Franco Ressel

Army officer Don Jose meets and begins a relationship with a mysterious gypsy, Carmen. After he discovers she has cheated on him with his Lieutenant, he kills the officer and flees the city with Carmen. Don Jose recovers from his wounds and is forced to begin the life of a bandit. Meanwhile, Carmen betrays him for a fling with her ex-husband and then a lurid affair with a bullfighter. Don Jose can no longer contain his anger.

Director Luigi Bassoni always makes a great-looking film, usually the result of working with some of the industry's best personnel. Here, the exquisite camerawork is handled by his cinematographer brother Camillo (they would work together in another Spaghetti Western a year later, A LONG RIDE FROM HELL with Steve Reeves). Unfortunately, despite his excellence, Mr Bazzoni wasn't very prolific in motion picture work. He spent much of his career producing short films and documentaries. In 1971, he worked again with Franco Nero for the Giallo THE FIFTH CORD and 1975, Mr Bazzoni delivered his masterpiece, the bizarre SciFi mystery FOOTPRINTS. He died from a stroke at age 82, March 2012.
