Synopsis >

Keoma -- KEOMA stars Nero (Die Hard 2; The Virgin And The Gypsy; Camelot) as the half-breed gunslinger of the title, returning after fighting in the American Civil War to find his home town infected with the plague and under the dictator-like rule of a criminal gang leader named Caldwell. Keoma's return is welcomed by his aged father but resented by his three half-brothers, not least because, against their father's wishes, they are now in the employment of the corrupt Caldwell. Intent on restoring justice to the town, Keoma finds himself up against Caldwell's horde of gangsters and his own flesh and blood in a deadly and ultimately tragic conflict. Directed with breathtaking visual style and flair by Enzo G. Castellari, KEOMA is a unique, innovative and uncommonly original entry in the Spaghetti Western genre. Featuring powerful performances from a superb cast that also includes Woody Strode (The Quick And The Dead; Once Upon A Time In The West; Spartacus), William Berger (Love Letters Of A Portuguese Nun) and Donald O'Brien (The Name Of The Rose), KEOMA ranks alongside 'Django' as one of Franco Nero's finest films. KEOMA is released on DVD by Argent Films. Special Features include exclusive introduction by acclaimed filmmaker Alex Cox, brand new extensive interview with director Enzo G. Castellari, theatrical trailers, plus 'Western Trail' trailers for Argent's forthcoming spaghetti western releases.
