A father and a mobster battle for a young man's soul in this critically-acclaimed 1993 movie headed by Robert De Niro (here also making his directorial debut), bringing class and charisma to this gutsy good versus evil gangland drama, set in 1960s New York.
Calogero Anello lives in the tough area of The Bronx with his honest, hard-working father Lorenzo. One day, he witnesses a murder committed by Sonny, the cool, dapper and dangerous gangster who controls the neighbourhood. When Calogero chooses to stay silent, Sonny spots the boy's potential and Calogero quickly falls under his spell much to Lorenzo's dismay. Thus starts a battle between father and mobster for Calogero's heart and mind as he grows into a young man. Both, in their very different ways, become mentors, forcing Calogero to confront the challenging moral complexities of living in The Bronx.
Inspired by a violent incident from actor and writer Chazz Palminteri's own boyhood, A Bronx Tale also features a cameo from Academy Award-winner Joe Pesci.
