The great silence further proves this perceived notion director sergio corbucci known for his hyper violent but somewhat communitarian motifs incorporates both american and european cinema values as well as the themes generally condoned along with the western genre. The great silence as with many of corbuccis westerns is known for its depictions of strong willed female characters namely the mother of the young outlaw miguel who requests silence to kill locos compatriot charlie regina the saloon madam who sherriff burnett falls for and pauline. The great silence is obviously a great name and a double entendre the anti hero in the film is a mute bounty hunter named silence and the seemingly infinite surrounding of snow serves as the other meaning of the word. The mood is sometimes jaunty but the great silence is no joke and the fatalism of its ending serves as an implicit critique of the sentimental optimism of many hollywood westerns
