From Amazon.co.uk

Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and Chazz Palminteri (Bullets Over Broadway, The Usual Suspects) star in a riveting drama about two men battling to save a young man’s life. Calogero Anello is a street-wise nine year old who lives in an apartment under the strict guidance of his bus driver father Lorenzo. One day Calogero witnesses a murder committed by a local gangster boss, Sonny (Chazz Palminteri). After Calingero refuses to identify Sonny, the gangster takes the boy under his wing, gradually introducing him to a new way of life. Soon, Calogero finds himself torn between two fathers and two very different ways of life. Vividly evoking the sights and sounds of the Bronx, Robert De Niro’s directorial debut is a compelling tale of love and loyalty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robert and Chazz... watch out 14 Jan 2002
Format:DVD
On the streets of the Bronx there lies a story of a stand-up guy, a mafia and a kid trying to find his way between his two different lives..Based on Chazz Palminteri's (whose original name is Lorenzo Calogero Palminteri and you will understand why I mentioned this when you see the movie) play and Robert De Niro's directorial debut, this movie will change your life with the messages in it.You will be happy when your girlfriend passes the door test :) If you haven't seen it yet..what are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Tale 20 Nov 2003
By Steven Roche VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
A Bronx Tale is a charming and touching tale of a boy named Cologero who is torn between his bus drivning father, Lorenzo (Robert De Niro) and a local gangland boss named Sonny (Chazz Palaminteri).
Cologero witnesses a shooting outside his apartment involving Sonny. Cologero is then asked to identify the shooter. Knowing what the conciquences would be, Cologero lies and says he doesn't recognise the shooter (fully knowing it was Sonny). Sonny then sees something within Cologreo and takes him under his wing and teaches him all about the streets and making people respect you. This angers Lorenzo who doesn't want to see his son grow up to be a street gangster. Cologreo then has two fathers, one who he lives with and signs his report cards. And one who he runs errands for and rules the street with.
This movie tackles all aspects of the 1960's New York. Race, free love and communitee are all issues that easily recognisable here.
All the actors on display pull out great performances. De Niro as usual is on form and has worked wonderfully in his directorial debut. It makes you wonder why he isn't directing more nowadays. But my hat has to go off to Chazz Palaminteri who is effectivly convincing as the street wise gangster Sonny.
There are twists in the plot as the story continues and soon comes together for the very convincing ending (With a brief appearance from Joe Pesci). The last line is excellent, with the narrator saying, "To all New Yorkers, my story is just another Bronx Tale."
The only thing I would complain about this film is that there is to much 60's music, it's all good but I feel it's overused.
I think this film appeals to everyone, it will warm your heart and change your life. I think this is the most underrated film I've ever seen.

Format:DVD
a good script and superp acting completes a masterful film.
"c" torn between his father and sonny his role model - life is all about loyalties and morals and this film encompasses all of this and more.
a highlight in my collection of movies and one that is only bettered by the "godfather trilogy".

5.0 out of 5 stars A true great 27 Jan 2002
Format:DVD
When i first watched this film i was absolutely blown away...it's everything you could want from a film and more.All of the actors are on song, especially Chazz Palminteri and De Niro, who both give powerful and hugely convincing performances. The locations, choreography and supporting cast are great, the plot is convincing, and this is all from De Niro's first stint in the directors chair. This is a true gem of a film which has sadly been graetly underrated, so if you haven't seen it already get and you'll be assured of a magnificant 2 hours film watching.

Format:VHS Tape
A film that tells the tale of a little boy growing up under the influence of two 'fathers', one an honest working man, Robert De Niro, the other a charismatic mafia boss played by Chazz Palminteri, is perfect for the direction of De Niro. Although the film has been described as some what 'Goodfellaesque', it is still a remarkably powerful and moving unique movie. The depiction of the violent scenes in the picture is particularly effective and it is refreshing to see a new director experiment in his ideas. De Niro truly knows how to get the most out of his relatively unknown actors who support and work with the storyline wonderfully. A film that has been grossly underated deserves a lot more recognition, any true De Niro fan will love this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story and strong performance from De Niro 4 July 2014
By Mr Baz #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD
This was the film Robert De Niro took a real bus driving test so he could play the part of Lorenzo Anello a normal man who is trying to raise his family in the Bronx district.

What makes this film unusual is that De Niro is playing a father and not a mobster (for once) he also takes he directing chair and does a pretty good job overall. The second interesting part of the film is that the part of Sonny LoSpecchio (the local capo) is portrayed by Chazz Palminteri, who wrote the story and it's based partly on his own life.

The story sees Lorenzo and his son Calogero living in the Bronx, Lorenzo wants nothing to do with the mob or for it to be any part of his life, but his Son soon strikes up an interest in mob activities, and forms a friendship with Sonny. This causes a conflict with his father, and the film follows the developments in the strained relationship between Father and Son..and Sonny (who is in many ways an alternative Father to Calogero )

This isn't a normal "mob film" in a lot of ways, there are elements of violence (though not too strong hence the 15 rating) It's more an exploration of the Father/Son bond and how that is tested and grows over time. It's interesting to see De Niro play the part of a Father and not the gangster, and he does it better than I expected. The cast is good, and the story is made all the more appealing being roughly based on reality. The film has a strong moral undertone to it, and it would be fair to call it somewhat removed from your normal Mafia based production. An interesting and unusual film that should appeal to a fairly broad audience, it might not be quite the classic De Niro all time top 5 film list, but it blends a serious story with some lighter more entertaining parts quite well.
