Martin Scorsese

Mean Streets

112' - 1973 - Crime, Drama, Thriller - Dialogue: German, Italian, English
Director: Martin Scorsese With: Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, David Proval, Amy Robinson
The future is set for Tony and Michael -- owning a neighborhood bar and making deals in the mean streets of New York City's Little Italy. For Charlie, the future is less clearly defined. A small-time hood, he works for his uncle, making collections and reclaiming bad debts. In love with a woman of whom his uncle disapproves (due to her epilepsy) and a friend of her disturbed cousin, Johnny Boy, a near psychotic whose trouble-making threatens them all -- Charlie just cannot reconcile opposing values. A failed attempt to escape (to Brooklyn) moves them all a step closer to a bitter, almost preordained future.
