Variety - 09/27/1993
"...GOODFELLAS with heart, A BRONX TALE represents a wonderfully vivid snapshot of a colorful place and time, as well as a very satisfying directorial debut by Robert De Niro..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/01/1993
"...A BRONX TALE is a very funny movie sometimes, and very touching at other times. It is filled with life and colorful characters and great lines of dialogue..."
Total Film - 08/01/2012
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a subtly sentimental take on morality as told through torn loyalties, forbidden love and a directorial style that suggests De Niro had been taking notes from Scorsese."

Product Description:

Robert DeNiro stars in his directorial debut as Lorenzo Anello, a dutiful father and blue-collar bus driver from the harsh New York City borough of the Bronx whom tries desperately to keep his son Calogero from surrendering to the temptation of organized crime. When Calogero witnesses Mafia kingpin Sonny (Chaz Palminteri) commit murder, he decides to honor the "code of the streets" and offers no information to the cops when interrogated. Consequently, a friendship is forged between Sonny and Calogero, and--against his father's wishes--the young man joins the Mafia. Calogero respects his father, though can not seem to shake his new lifestyle, but when push comes to shove it is his father who must confront the mob and save his son's life, leaving Calogero to re-examine the magnitude of his father's honest work ethics.
