Now, it is one of my favorite movies in the genre. In kind, give it the advantage of acting, and he has the gangster films of fights, shootings and etc. All the picture is built on the workshops of the dialogue, which is immersed in history the beginning does not just bored to the end.

Depp, of course, the young, because my strong impression is not made. But already felt peculiar to him. now charisma. Al Pacino is the same — magnificent. As I — the actor that is created for this frame.

In the beginning of the film laugh at a comical Left-handed (the protagonist Pacino), but in the end, is so imbued with that feel even something to understand Benjamin becomes the personification of the life of the ordinary person — the constant pursuit of fame, success and so the same constancy failures, humility and loss.

And even closer to the end of the movie, when starting to get bored with monotonous scenery, as rasplachivaetsya spot of paint on a white canvas make a detailed scene of carnage that no how does not fit in the General plan and invigorates lost vigilance of the viewer.

P. S. This picture as another indication that the price of the life of the little man in big country — $ 500 a piece of iron.

I must say that for me, "Donnie Brasco" is a benchmark of the genre of films about the mafia, even above the Godfather. A great combination of humor, good story, intrigue and, of course, it is impossible not to mention the main characters: al Pacino and johnny Depp.

Joseph Pistone(johnny Depp) — agent the mission of the FBI who gets the job to join the criminal gang of local mafia. From now on, he — Donnie Brasco,

under this name will know the gangsters.

In one of the Brooklyn bars he meets Lefty(al Pacino). Lefty asks to stop for him next day so is the winner the friendly relationship. Soon Lefty represents family members of his friend — Donnie Brasco. They meet every day, Lefty tells Donu business rules in "are You the business never carry money in wallets, they turn their that's it, big bill up". In General the job is progressing better than ever, but Donnie, he not aware, begins to enter into the taste. He less likely to see the family, less likely to go to contact with the FBI, he starting to like this life.

Thanks Lefty, he finds out about almost all crimes in the County, the old man slowly begins to trust Donnie all over more responsible business and soon they become best friends. He begin to trust the gangsters, he is starting to become a big player, all is just perfect. But it turns out that the gang had a Snitch. What happen to Donnie Brasco what would you choose Joseph Pistone? Spoiler for this had better see for yourself.

As I already said, the game main characters of the movie are just amazing. I think that in the Godfather, no one not so doubt Depp, while he was not considered a stellar actor, it was after this role is proclaimed one of the best actors of his generation. About actors 2 plan: well what I will say, nothing special, what was a special show? Played and required. With the overall picture is really not exactly fell, though it was too good face Bruno Kirby. Not he looks like a gangster. But is it can be called a minus? I'm not so I think.

In General, the film is gorgeous. As I have write in the beginning, excellent in all articles. One of the best movies about the mob.

Of 10 10

Definitely.

1. — a Beautiful ring.
- Give it to his wife.
- As I give it to my wife, because I'm not married
- And got a girl?
- Is.
- Marry it

2. — So you De Ville.

Forget about this.

And such hilarious dialogues in the film a lot. He simply amazing portion of humor and at the same time, the lyrical story. Pistone, a young but fairly experienced FBI agent sent to criminal gang implement the maintenance of detailed report of cases on how things are coming in the gangster world. Initially, playing the role of a merchant with jewels, it is credibility "Lieutenant" Lefty, who, despite his advanced age not able to achieve any major success in the underworld. Lefty trusts Donny, and together they did a few minor things, but that is enough for to Lieutenant confided imaginary juvelyrika and saw it, does counterpart, but as a son is never been. Or rather were, but who needs a snotty junkie. This only causes great pain to the father, so the left-Handed are so attached to Donnie. He gave it in your team, and for him, he ready for all.

What same Donnie? The guy is going through a strong conflict of personalities. He regular supplies of the FBI details of how things to the underworld, and those in turn all the deeper they dig through a mafia boss, Sonny Black, who recently ascended to the throne. Doing so, double the work, we see Donnie is changing internally. It starts working as the gangster, acting like the gangster and even think of the gangster. He already do not know who he's such a — the FBI agent or mafia. Have him the problem starts with the wife, since she says that it comes home not her husband Joseph Pistone, a very different and a stranger, "" Donnie Brasco,

And now a little bit about actors. Al Pacino — is God, and here to say something too. It may all — to be thin and a prudent strategy as Michael Corleone, a cold-blooded killer as Tony Montana, and assistant mafia as a Lefty. The difference between these three heroes in that first second — stood top of their clans, and last — just a puppet. Frankly, before watching a little bit afraid that will not be able to evaluate the role of Pacino in the merit, because in my mind he was like an Almighty man, but not six. But he I was amazed. I want to say Bravo! And to finish.

Johnny Depp. I believe that is one of his best roles (still on the first place put the kid with "Arizona Dream") To moderately severe, but uninhibited (otherwise not mafia), a charismatic and calculating, sure, but not arrogant. Not say that his game he outshines Pacino, but it from him not required. Together they great acting Duo, but the character Depp is on the first place, as his fate is the focus of the film. When I looked, the didn't know how there was real-life of Joseph Pistone, so the final film has affected me the most. And the feelings experienced Donnie Joseph can be seen on the facial expression of johnny. Brilliantly conveys the atmosphere of events and that I want to say thank you to Depp.

And in closing, a few words about the mob. Although it and the mob cannot be called. Soon gang, which does not has a high enough support. All we have used to think that mafia — it is a powerful criminal organization, which hands police the government. It is not surprising, since so it was 70-ies and 80-ies of the twentieth century. Brought up on films and Coppola's Leone, we only strengthen our faith in this. But Mike Newell showed that in the 90s it is changing. Coup. The mafia has not that before. Sonny Black, in appearance Madsen, stands at the helm of this gang, but it can at any time be removed, if a certain amount of money is not goes to someone's account, or goes to other hands. But here whose? On this question the film does not give the answer. Racketeering — that's the only earnings team Sonny Black.

To me personally, the film loved it. Powerful and entertaining, with a splendid cast, which is not just serving a room on the platform and really, plays very well. Good staging and a very strong script. And what you need? Just watch and enjoy.
