An epic, long, extensive and detailed movie about a former Prohibition-era Jewish gangster, who returns to Brooklyn over 30 years later, where he once again must confront the ghosts and regrets of his old life. Directed by Sergio Leone with Robert De Niro, James Woods, Joe Pesci and Elizabeth McGovern (and many more), who give a great performance, also the child actors are terrific!
This film is a profound expression of truth regarding friendship and betrayal. Noodles, played by Robert De Niro and Scott Tiler (during childhood), is a simple man and a thug with one credo: you can battle the entire world but you never betray a friend. During the course of this film we experience various pieces of Noodles’s life, from childhood, through young adulthood and old age. We learn what happens to his friends, his foes and the love of his life, Deborah. The time span considered is long, including Noodles’s childhood shortly after the turn of the century, through the prohibition era, and finally the 1960’s.
