The Great Silence (1968)
The Great Silence (1968) is a classic Italian western directed by Sergio Corbucci. It is a story of revenge and justice set in the snowy mountains of Utah in the late 19th century. The film is known for its intense violence and its powerful themes of morality and justice.
However, The Great Silence also contains some surprisingly sexual moments. One of the most memorable is the scene in which the main character, Silence, is seduced by a prostitute. The scene is shot in a very sensual way, with the camera lingering on the prostitute’s body and her suggestive movements. The scene is also notable for its lack of dialogue, which adds to the tension and intensity of the moment.
Another memorable sexual moment occurs when Silence is in the bathtub with his lover, Pauline. The two share a passionate kiss, and the camera lingers on their faces as they embrace. The scene is shot in a very intimate way, and the audience is left with the feeling that the two are truly in love.

In a flashback, a man is shot while approximately a dozen prostitutes run around in panic. Their breasts and buttocks can be seen, but are only briefly visible due to the (intentionally) chaotic manner in which the scene is filmed.
A man attempts to rape a woman (he is killed before he can do so); she is groped and her clothes are partly torn (no nudity).
