The sad news has come in recent days that has shaken both the film industry and cinema fans: the late Oscar-, Grammy- and Golden Globe-winning Italian composer Ennio Morricone, the best-known and most influential figure in the history of film music.

In honor of Ennio Morricone, the Former Once Upon a Time in the Wild Westwill be shown at the Polus Cinema, featuring “Good, The Bad and The Ugly” for two weeks from July 16. The western classics, with a digitally restored image and remixed sound, will be subtitled screenbed @ Corvin Cinema.

During Morricone’s career, he composed music for more than half a thousand films, including countless cult works. The best known of these are his music for western films, including For a Handful of Dollars (1964), A Few Dollars for More (1965), The Evergreen, The Bad and the Ugly (1966), The Ever-Green Melodies of the Once Upon a Wild West (1968). Sergio Leone‘s western classics with the unforgettable soundtrack of Morricone and the brilliant playing of Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, the beautifully photographed extra-widescreen visuals and the long atmosphere for generations of movie fans, it embodies the uppercase cinema experience.

“Its the only scene I can’t imagine ever being able to soar beyond,” Quentin Tarantino said of the finale of Good, Bad and Ugly. In addition to the main drive before the master of film music, it is no secret that today’s film fans can see the evergreen works of cinema history where their creators originally intended them: on the cinema screen.

In the “Classic” film club of the Polus Cinema, more films will be returning to the big screen for one night in the next few days, including The Thing (1982) from John Carpenter, whose creepy music is also named Morricone. James Cameron’s 1991 classic, Terminator 2 – Day of Judgment, The Apocalypse Now – The Final Cut (1979) and The Godfather 2 (1974) by Francis Ford Coppola, and Robert Zemeckis ’cult trilogy, Back to the Future 2. ( 1989) and 3 (1990).

There are roughly 4 parts of the films … Acting … Writing … Music … Cinematography. The movies tick all the 4 boxes.

The boxers need perseverance and toughness just like as the dancers do.

The physical fight and what is playing in the fighter’s mind and soul will be showing in time and space. Basic concept was to bring alive in one ring  two point of struggles … one displaying the actually fight, the other couple playing side-by-side of the boxing girl’s struggling soul. The audience can watch the 2in1 acts at the same time.
