Gangster Sonny is the big man in the Bronx neighborhood of an Italian small boy named Calogero. A shooting witnessed by the boy (nicknamed C) is the starting point of a lasting bond between the gangster and the boy. Father (bus driver Lorenzo), however, disapproves. C grows up under the wing of both men, torn between his own natural honesty and his fascination with Sonny. C’s neighborhood cronies get involved in theft, use of guns, and racial fights. When C falls for an African American girl, things don’t get any easier. C’s leap to manhood is marked by tragedy, but also by his recognition of the many faces of love.

  • I think “A Bronx Tale” is one of the most powerful and moving films I’ve seen. Yeah, its a bit coarse in the language – perhaps even shocking – but entirely realistic. The plot was pretty awesome bringing the real life struggles of inter-racial relationships and the idiot friends of a person’s youth. Robert De Niro gives a great directorial debut and has a good performance. Chazz Palminteri also is great. In short this is a very good film, the acting is well done, the 60’s era its set in is very realistic and features some great music. I would recommend it to fans of both De Niro and gangster flicks.
