Story Movie

"Winnetou - 1. Teil 4K" (1963) is the famous Western adventure saga based on the novels of Karl Maya, which takes viewers back to the far West in the mid-19th century in the new 4K format. Director Harald Reich picks up anew the story of the friendship between Karl Maya, a German traveler, and the great Apache chief Winnetou. This adventure is filled with prairie exotica, cowboy duels and exhilarating battles between Indians and settlers.

In 4K, every frame comes to life with gorgeous color and enhanced picture clarity. Epic landscapes and thrilling encounters take on a new splendor, capturing the viewer's attention throughout the movie. The superb cast, including Pierre Brice as Winnetou and Lex Barker as Old Shur, brings life to the story, making the characters unforgettable.

"Winnetou - 1. Teil 4K" is not just a re-creation of a classic, but a new take on Winnetou's cinematic legacy. It retains the spirit of the original but enriches it with modern technology, making the movie appealing to both fans of the classic and a new generation of moviegoers.

Review 4K Movie

Arguably the start of the notable German Western cycle of the 60's, along with Treasure of the Silver Lake (Der Schatz I'm Silbersee of the previous year). In this early adaption of the tremendously successful Karl May novels which formed the backbone of the series, Ex Tarzan Lex Barker, blonde hair slicked back in vague echo of Kirk Douglas, plays Old Shatterhand. French actor Pierre Brice is Winnetou, good Apache, his Indian blood brother. Unlike the cynicism of the Spaghetti Westerns which followed shortly afterwards, the German version is backward looking - nostalgic, perhaps, for the more simplistic and romantic version of the genre, common in Hollywood before the psychological complications wrought by the 50's. Thus Shatterhand and Winnetou are more Lone Ranger and Tonto than Trinità and Bambino. The present film is fully equal of its rivals elsewhere on the continent in recreating the old west in mid europe, wagon trains marauding indians and all. Winnetou 1 also has the distinction of a marvellous score by Martin Bottcher, its sweeping main theme instantly memorable and looks superb in the widescreen transfer. Recent months have seen the release of three or four boxes of the films featuring Winnetou et al, with another one including the 1980's TV series, also worth investigating. However prospective buyers should note that the English dialogue/subtitling is not consistent; box 1 for instance only has 2 out of the 4 films in English while even in those that do minor characters and small scenes often lapse back into German - not a problem when the plot is relatively straightforward but unless bought cheaply the annoyance is enough to dampen a full recommendation of a greatly entertaining series of films hardly known to western fans, at least in the UK.
