“An outlaw among the outlaws. Infused with a unique dose of French fatalism that hangs in the air in just about every scene.” -- “Countfink”, Fandor.com
After her husband is lynched by bandits, Michèle Mercier (Bava’s BLACK SABBATH) seeks revenge and turns to an old friend for help (played by star/creator Robert Hossein of RIFIFI.) A solitary figure who lives in a ghost town and dons a single black glove before each gunfight, Hossein is reluctant, but soon infiltrates the widow’s enemies to force a showdown.
A French take on the Italians’ take on American genres -- a “baguette western”! Inspired by the international success of Sergio Leone’s DOLLARS trilogy, and armed with the catchiest of theme songs via international cult figure Scott Walker, CEMETERY WITHOUT CROSSES offers a Gallic spin on the Euro gunslinger pic.
