Gangster Sonny is the big man in Calogero's Bronx neighborhood. A shooting witnessed by Calogero is the starting point of a lasting bond between the gangster and the small boy. Father (bus driver Lorenzo), however, disap- proves. Calogero grows up under the wings of both men, torn between his own natural honesty and his fascination with Sonny. C's neighborhood cronies get involved in theft, use of guns, racial fights. When C meets girl, things don't become easier. C's leap to manhood is marked by tragedy, but also by his recognition of the many faces of love.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's the moralistic tenor of A Bronx Tale that's ultimately most off-putting."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Beautiful story"
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"A superb directorial debut by DeNiro, a work that rivals Goodfellas."
‑ Gabe Leibowitz, eCinemaCenter.com
"De Niro's feature directorial debut is not a second-tier Scorsese film. Though telling a familiar coming-of-age story, it finds a new angle in depicting the irrational and subconscious origins of racism."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"De Niro proves to be just as much a force behind the camera as he does in front of it. A superb debut - a gripping movie."
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"Average effort."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"It paints a fairly accurate and hard-hitting picture of the racial tensions of the times, but it still glamorizes the gangsters with too much love."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A wonderful, touching tale about growing up and making decisions."
‑ Willie Waffle, WaffleMovies.com
"De Niro's first trip behind the camera proves that he's been doing his homework. This is a masterful debut, and a great film altogether."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
