Michael Cimino

Michael Cimino | USA | 1980 | 216 min. | V.O. English, Russian, French, Polish, German subtitled in Spanish

Kris Kristofferson starred in Heaven’s Gate, the notorious production whose megalomania wrecked Cimino’s career and which, over the years, has come to considered as a cult film. With all the pioneer epic of Ford’s endless horizons, the film follows the story of Jim Averill, a Harvard graduate who, over time, becomes the sheriff of Johnson County, Wyoming, in 1890. A place and a time when Eastern European immigrants are being harassed by mercenaries hired by landowners. Averill takes the side of the immigrants, which brings him into conflict with Nate Champion, one of the outlaws on the other side (and an immigrant himself) with whom he fights for the love of a woman, a prostitute played by Isabelle Huppert.
