Written and directed by the legendary Sergio Corbucci, COMPANEROS is a once-in-a-lifetime teaming of the two greatest European stars in ‘Spaghetti Western’ history.
Fate brought them together… Greed made them inseparable… Violence made them COMPANEROS!
Yodlaf Peterson (Franco Nero of DJANGO) is a suave Swedish arms dealer with a love for fast money. Vasco (Tomas Milian of TRAFFIC) is a trigger-happy Mexican bandit with a hate for suave Swedish arms dealers. But when the two men team up to kidnap a professor who holds the key to a fortune in gold, they find themselves hunted by the American army, stalked by a marijuana-crazed sadist (Academy Award winner Jack Palance) and trapped in the middle of a revolution about to explode. Can these two enemies blast their way across Mexico together without killing each other first?
Written and directed by the legendary Sergio Corbucci (DJANGO, THE GREAT SILENCE), COMPANEROS is a once-in-a-lifetime teaming of the two greatest European stars in ‘Spaghetti Western’ history. Fernando Rey (THE FRENCH CONNECTION) and Karin Schubert (BLACK EMANUELLE) co-star in this action-packed comedy classic that also features a remarkable score by Ennio Morricone (THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY). Now freshly transferred in gorgeous High Definition from the original negative, COMPANEROS is presented here in both its English and full-length Italian Versions for the first time ever!
