Product Description

Ten years in planning Sergio Leone's epic Once Upon a Time in America portrays 50 years of riveting underworld history and offers rich roles to a remarkable cast. Robert de Niro and James Woods play lifeling Lower East Side plas whose wary partnership unravels in death and mystery. Strong support comes from Tuesday Weld, Joe Pesci, Jennifer Connelly, Elizabeth McGovern and the young actors playing the central characters as ghetto kids. To see this film (offered for the first time in the full version 1984 Cannes Film Festival audiences cheered) is "to be swept away by the assurance and vitality of a great director making his final statement in a medium he adored " (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).

  1.  Vintage Gangster Story with a perfect mix of drama, sex and emotion 17 May, 2013 On
    Genre: Crime, Drama

    For: People in awe of Gangster movies, or politically interested people. Interested in vintage history might also like it.

    Brief: The age of set-backs in America, when rich people had everything to lose and poor people had nothing to eat. One kid and his three cousin met a roguish kid unusually, who showed them a dream of having a gang of their own. And sooner or later the gang changes from blue collar crime gang to a white collar crime gang. And the end with the twist and turns are yet to come.

    Comment (in short): A wonderfully crated movie with the perfect mix of drama, sensation and fiction. To me, this is the best gangster movie in the Hollywood history, if you do little care about the story of the movie.
