In this surreal, satirical comedy, Italian director Marco Ferreri presents his take on the classic American Western, sympathizing with the Indian instead of the cowboy. This time the Battle of Little Big Horn, the scene of General Custer's humiliating defeat by the Indians, rages at the demolished site of a formerly thriving marketplace in Paris. Westerners have always played loose with the facts, and this film is no exception. Marcello Mastroianni is a preening, primping General Custer who is transported to Paris in the Nineteen Seventies to clear the area of Indians. Michel Piccoli is an effeminate Buffalo Bill, who performs at a Parisian nightclub, and Ugo Tognazzi is an Indian scout who runs a shop where atrocities are among the souvenirs and white women are the sweatshop labor. Catherine Deneuve is the seemingly demure frontier gal who literally picks up Custer before the Indians do. In addition to being a comedy that indulges in slapstick and sheer buffoonery, it takes a wry look at many of the political and social issues, particularly Indian genocide, that shaped America.
