Heaven's Gate

Michael Cimino / US, 1980 / 219 min.

The producers did not think it would work, but filmmaker Michael Cimino got what he wanted: he insisted that only Isabelle Huppert should play the part of the liberated brothel owner in his epic Western slash magnum opus. The young French star acted alongside Kris Kristofferson and Christopher Walken in her American debut.
