Ferreri's satire of American westerns, in which he sides with the Indians. Hilariously disregarding the facts of the period, he instead sets his story in 1970's Paris. Recently released in America, this is a film which manages to entertain on a variety of different levels.
In this satirical comedy, Marco Ferreri transplants the Battle of Little Big Horn to the site of a demolished Parisian mall and presents his take on the classic American Western, sympathizing with the Indians instead of the cowboys. Starring Catherine Deneuve, Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli and Ugo Tognazzi.
