Once Upon a Time in the West is not the only epic western that benefits from Cardinale’s luminescent presence. In The Professionals, directed by Richard Brooks, she is more than the wife kidnapped by a Mexican bandit; she is a ray of light and humanity in the testosterone-heavy Areopagus of Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, Robert Ryan, Jack Palance and Woody Strode.

Screenings on 29th September at 19:15 in Cinéma ARENA in Fribourg in collaboration with Ciné-Club Universitaire
