Ring of Fire

Germany, 2000 (MIFF 2000, Animation)

Director: Andreas Hykade

At once a tender love story and a decadent spree through a depraved macho spaghetti western hell. Two young cowboys seek to be 'real tough men' through gun slingin', hard drinkin' and hard lovin'. A masterpiece in cinemascope.
