Read 2 different reviews dealing with this Spaghetti, one postive opinion and one rather negative impression (imdb).
So, who has seen this one? Does it have official tape or dvd releases...?? :-X

This really needs a dvd release.. I got a dvd-r of the VHS under the title Taste of Death. I think it's a very good snow western, amazing actually. Loved everything about it, grim atmostphere, great direction and score. Bruno Corazzari is a very effective villain.. John ireland and Andrea Giordana (from Johnny Hamlet) are well cast. It's one of my favourites, and in my top 20.

I've learned that with IMDB reviews, I usually feel the opposite of the reviewers, so negative reviews usually mean that I'll probably like the film.  That said, I've never seen this one, but love the soundtrack...

Yeah, online eurocult-reviews from imdb or elsewhere are for the most part not to be taken seriously...lots of negative feedback is either linked to utter cluelessness or pure ignorance! >:(

Oh, how I hate those wannabe film-critics with no passion and dedication for the respective genre...those who bash movies for cheap production values, bad acting, logical flaws or whatever I gotta say loud and clear: this is NOT for you, stay away and most important: do not express your amateur opinion online...there's always sth. productive you can do: take out the garbage bags, feed the dog or go pick up some flowers... :-\

Well, pardon my little off-topic rambling, back to "Quanto costa morire" now! :)

Just watched this one and I am pretty excited about it...the title song and soundtrack in general is REALLY REALLY strong, the main villain played by eurocult regular Bruno Corazzari is one mean bastard and this role ranks among his best acting moments, that's for sure...I can only recommend this flick to all Spaghetti afficionados on here...watch it cause it's a winner! :)

Oh and thanks again paperbag! :P

Must say that this is a favourite of mine, too - really can't understand how anyone could fail to appreciate it. It's certainly more of a slow-burner than a shoot 'em up, but the acting is excellent (why didn't Andrea Giordana make more westerns?!) and it's nice to see a bit of character development amongst the action. As paperbag has already said, it's crying out for a DVD release to really make those snow covered landscapes look as impressive as those in THE GREAT SILENCE, though at least the copy that's doing the rounds has no foreign subs, and is more than watchable.

Just discovered that there's an official release of the score (by Francesco de Masi)...fantastic, will pick it up very soon! ::)

It's an excellent purchase!  And you should do it SOON as it just went out of print and will only get more expensive and harder to find the longer you wait.  I have the CD and I love it.  It took me a long time to get around to listening to it (I haven't seen the movie yet unfortunately) and I was pleased.
