SMALL SHAME AND SURPRISE
Robert de Nero — one of my most favorite actors. He if not plays, living his life we just looking, are witnesses to a couple of hours. But not going to praise him a great talent, and back to "shame". Looking through the ratings of movies about the Italian mafia, I found that is an amazing movie about the heard. Given the fact that other thing I watched a million times, and "Bronx history" ever. In the 90 years of this movie is not said, apparently not quite spectacular — then we talked a lot about films De Niro "Real", "Casino", "Once in America". In those years, people saw in him the image of the Russian 90s, but with the Italian's face. And I saw it always lyrical that he proved his directorial work.
ALMOST the GANGSTER MOVIE
I am glad that had this movie are now in adulthood. You can get positive emotions and to objectively capture the essence. Dynamic action, fights, brutality, all that is "relishes" in his paintings Scorsese You will not see. Compare Directors De Niro and Scorsese we won't — if you look at the roots they look in different directions, although serves his dish under the "one sauce".
For those who have not seen the movie or watched a long time ago, a little reminiscent of the plot of the story: America, the 60-ies. New York, the Bronx, the Italian quarter. 9-year-old Sicilian Calogero boy in love with the lifestyle of a mafia clan based in their street. He knows all the gangsters at the names, monitors their habits, gestures and deeds. But his idol — boss Sonny. Calogero rubs in the bar, where mobsters and happily immersed in this atmosphere of "another life". He it — the son of a humble bus driver, played by De Niro.
The boys on the street playing mafia, imitate them, but all seems OK in the quarter is completely safe. But one day, Calogero becomes a accidental witness to the murder. It idol kills a man of the gun Parking. Passers-by say that the boy was witness house Calogero the police comes. The boy goes to identify the criminal, but not losing Sonny. After this incident, the gangster begins to notice of Calogero and his family. It offers the bus driver job, but he refuses to interfere in the Affairs of the mafia and not allowing the son to maintain a relationship with Sonny. However, Calogero a very happy ties of friendship with his idol mafia. Have Sonny appears great liking to the boy. A boy becomes a waiter in a bar and gambling — gets a tip for the drink service and award winning. Once the boy brings home the money received for a successful throw "bones". It is causing anger among its honest, but poor father and he goes to investigate. Returning to the gangster money Lorenzo (the boy's father), denies the son to be friends with bandit take it money. But the boy grows up and continues this valuable his friendship. Time goes by and Calogero becomes a teenager. He first sight falls in love with colored girl Jane, after seeing her father in the bus. Between the pair start a relationship, but CALDIERO shy of her origin, so like them in the district is the mutual dislike of black — within blocks of each other, they keep out of...
The plan of action will be a pair of fights and some times for the picture you will hear gun shots. The movie is not about it! And about youth, dreams, honesty, love of children and parents, love for the girl, racism and, of course, friendship. Let's start immediately with the main character Calogero — it is not the gangster. He they are has become. And didn't want to. He just a dreamer who liked the romantic image of the mafia. The guy is just friends with boss Sonny. Do not steal, do not kill extorts. Even the boss said to him — this is my life, live yours. Calogero is not firing fights. Goes to school for baseball. The main character — not a gangster. And it should be noted. This film is about friendship.
Lorenzo fears for future son, but and was just jealous of him to Sonny, and Sonny, in turn, is jealous of a guy father. They like are fighting for his love and attention. Both they love him: protecting and providing valuable advice. And the guy loves them. dumps the scales is not one of the parties. These and permeated the picture. The guy realized the dream and immersed himself in the world of his boyish dreams. It is the dream of the childhood, — want the all-powerful other. I think this was at many.
Through the spray of racism refers to combat stereotypes — the color of the skin and the opinions of others as not important, if you like. All the picture is permeated with love and lyrics, so this is probably another dish served to us under certain the "sauce". It is De Niro wrapped in a popular shell is very warm and good promise. Lyrical theme is the statement of Lorenzo to his son: The saddest thing in life — squandered talent. Statement and the warning "don't waste your life on bad things". From this warns him and Sonny.
ACTORS AND DESTINY
Lillo Brancato (Calogero Anello). Earlier it was not noticed. But when I saw the movie thought the son De Niro! Directly the similarity on the genetic level! Himself the guy is very cute, colorful and good. Very conscientious and honest. Perhaps that is why not being a gangster, having it chances. The role is played perfectly.
A SURPRISING FACT I learned the actor after watching the movie! It turns out this guy Lillo Brancato starred in "the Sopranos." Toli he got into the criminal way, or omitted "thoughts materialists" but... he was a real gangster! Raided the house, shot a policeman and sat in jail! Even in the movie is not will see. In 2018 came about this whole story a documentary.
Robert De Niro (Lorenzo Anello). Modest in social courageous and decisive as a person. It is not the main and not the gangster role. It a caring father, a good family man.
Palminteri Chazz (Calogero Lorenzo Of Palminteri). Feel the connection names? YES! It is on the memories of Palmistry constructed plot. It he is a true native of the Bronx. It it a boy was friends with the influential mafia. Beyond the fact that the boy Calogero (from this life) do not squandered his talent! He became a Hollywood actor, writer and Director!
Remember the feeling of sadness when I read any book? If you miss characters say goodbye to them as your real friends. Here same feeling left out at me like I miss this nice characters and the Bronx of the 60's, era, never lived.
HERE IS a MOVIE, LIFE AND FATE!
