A Bronx Tale 1993
One man lives in the neighborhood, another man owns it. A devoted father battles the local crime boss for the life of his son.
Plot: A father becomes worried when a local gangster befriends his son in the Bronx in the 1960s.
Story: Gangster Sonny is the big man in the Bronx neighborhood of an Italian small boy named Calogero. A shooting witnessed by the boy (nicknamed C) is the starting point of a lasting bond between the gangster and the boy. Father (bus driver Lorenzo), however, disapproves. C grows up under the wing 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, and racial fights. When C falls for an African American girl, things don't get any easier. C's leap to manhood is marked by tragedy, but also by his recognition of the many faces of love.
Did you know: At one point in the film, Sonny tells Calogero that he read 'Niccolo Machiavelli' during his time in prison. He later tells Calogero how he runs his gang - that he'd rather be feared than loved, because fear is something that he can control, while love is not. Sonny then goes on to stress it's important not to give his people so little that fear crosses over into hate. This concept of leadership stems directly from Machiavelli's most famous book, "The Prince."
