Quien ? (Kill Amigo) 1967 Damiano Damiani

Content: Mexico during the Revolution after 1 910 - while the state power executes revolutionaries, gangs attacked the army in order to steal their weapons for the revolution. The American Bill Tate (Lou Castel) is a witness of such an event as he takes the train. Spontaneously, he helps the attackers, in which he shoots the driver, himself but forward as a hostage. Thus he gains the trust of their leader, El Chuncho (Gian Maria Volonte) and joins them.

succeed with his help, some strategically successful attacks on military bases, so that they are making rich pickings. El Chuncho wants to sell them to General Elias and is more interested in the money and fun than his own in the Revolution. This is changing increasingly as he realizes the misery of his countrymen, and celebrate him as the hero. But Bill Tate pursued very different goals ...

"We r white?" (Quien sabe?) - As Damiano Damiani's film 1967 headlined with this issue, the Vietnam War was in a first high point, but settled, he had his story to the local revolutionary Chuncho (Gian Maria Volonte) and his American partner Bill Tate (Lou Castel) during the Mexican civil war between 1910 and 1920.

The parallels with the events of the presence in Vietnam still evident. The Americans supported the Mexican insurgents ostensibly in the fight against their own people, has in the end only his own advantage in mind. Damiano Damiani described his film itself as a "political" and objected to the classification in the Western genre, but actually does just the adventurous and create the classic Western leaning against the context of the necessary complexity to the film beyond mere criticism of the American approach to lift.

is due to the particular Gian Maria Volonte, ostensibly one of a variation to their roles in the few years to the Sergio Leone Western "Per un Pugno Tues Dollari" (A Fistful of Dollars) and "Per qualche Dollaro in più (For a Few Dollars More) is. Again he is a wild-looking, sometimes emotionally uncontrolled, trigger-Bandit, although the weapons for the revolutions - General Elias steals (Jaime Fernández), but think of it, above all its fun and its merit. The train robbery at the beginning of the film is in accordance with his masterpiece that he reacted with ruthless severity.

Starting with the officer, whom he placed as a living obstacle on the tracks, the shoot down any soldier that wants to come to the rescue, to the complete slaughter of all located on the train military and police forces; even if they already vulnerable to run away, is the general case, a single orgy of violence, the "El Chuncho" with his band, which also include "El Santo" (Klaus Kinski) and the beautiful Adelita (Martine Beswick), performs. He met the American Bill, who had shot the driver in order to fake support for Chunchos gang. His maneuver is successful and he can join the gang, although he produced with his smooth and fresh outlook on some members distrust.

classified staccato Damiani after that some attacks on army bases, even at the change of strategy with the help of the American clarify, But after only one third of the film will these pure action sequences and the plot is dedicated to increasing the internal structure of the revolutionaries, to which also contributes Kinski's role as a violent "holy", but also Adelidas ambivalent interest in the well-kept Bill. The collection centers on the relationship between the Mexicans and the Americans. This is characterized by two contradictory trends - Chuncho that is increasingly caught in a conflict between his desire for wealth and the obvious poverty and oppression of his countrymen, approaches to Bill, as it seeks to be dispassionate, while Chunchos trusting nature against him but not understand.

The complexity of the film lies in this interaction, the Damiani plays out in different events. In the central scene of the film met Chuncho a wealthy landowner and his dedicated wife. Both impress him, because he understands the guilt of the haves and they are brave for her husband uses, but the rural population, which had long suffered under his rule demands that Chuncho they celebrate as a revolutionary's death. He must realize that the time mutual discussions have been superceded by uncontrolled violence. When men begin Chunchos suggest to harass the woman, Bill takes for her party, which one of the men to used to attack him. Chuncho spontaneous shoots him. As his stunned colleagues ask why he shoots his own man, he responded, "Bill is my friend".

At this time, this Chuncho nothing in common with Volonté roles in the Le
-one Western, because his actions are influenced only by sincerity and seriousness, quite apart from the general waiver of cool comments, sarcastic remarks and cynical behavior pattern in "Quien sabe?" in which the film is also different from his thematically related follow-up "El Mercenario" by Sergio Corbucci. Overall, Damiani's "Western" so little to do with the then very current spaghetti western genre in common.

sees ill Chunchos serious consequence not, leading to the misunderstanding between him and leads Chuncho, which increases the more, the closer the more it is. There are fewer bills actual intentions that are good as a comment to the American Vietnam-use as its inability himself into his Mexican friend - the more his sympathies and thus increase its assistance to the more clearly the discrepancy between their way of thinking.

The failure of the Americans in Vietnam, ostensibly to the locals Help wanted to come was based ultimately on not to understand the character and intentions of the Vietnamese people, but that could not have guessed Damiano Damiani 1967 in the final analysis. But even if "Quien sabe?" failed to find solutions and the "who knows?" as a warning sign at the end of a situation, described the further development - as is the situation at the time of the present - it was not obvious. One of the film have said very clearly: "Ami go home!"
