quietearth [Celluloid 06.16.12] Portugal drama western adventure



Hay Road cops the old Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western days with its distinct sound and feel but has an updated cinematographic look. Guess what it's about? Yup. Revenge. It's playing up the upcoming Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the competition section. Check out the trailer below.

This is the story of a man who after living over ten years isolated away from his country, returns to avenge His brother's death. Inspired by the writings of David Henry Thoreau, he is translating 'Civil Disobedience' into Portuguese. The action is set between 1908 and 1910, between the assassination of the Portuguese King and Prince and the creation of the Portuguese Republic, an era where anarchists who fight against the monarchy often cross the path of burglars. On a country where corruption is set, the state representatives try to rob, arrest and kill innocents. The main character faces the tyranny of the state and tries to save the rest of his family. But this is a country where nothing changes.
