Slovenski opis filma:

Režija: Martin Scorsese Scenarij: Martin Scorsese, Mardik Martin Igrajo: Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, David Proval Zgodba o skupnosti italijanskih Američanov druge generacije v newyorški soseski Little Italy. Charlie dela kot zbiralec dolgov za gangsterskega strica Giovannija. Med strankami, od katerih mora izterjati denar, je njegov brezskrbni prijatelj Johnny Boy, ki ima velik dolg do Michaela, okrutnega kralja posojil. Charlie poskuša pomiriti strasti med mafijci in prijateljem, a ugotavlja, da ne bo mogel ubraniti neodgovornega Johnnyja. Medtem skuša prikriti svoje razmerje s Tereso, Johnnyjevo sestrično, ki ima epilepsijo, kar stric Giovanni vidi kot sramoto. Ko mu Giovanni ponudi napredovanje v skupnosti, namreč lastno restavracijo, ki bi jo vodil Charlie, se mora ta odločiti med željo po moči, zvestobo do prijatelja in ljubeznijo.

Originalni opis filma:

The future is set for Tony and Michael - owning a neighbour- hood bar and making deals in the mean streets of New York city's Little Italy. For Charlie, the future is less clearly defined. A small-time hood, he works for his uncle, making collections and reclaiming bad debts. He's probably too nice to succeed. In love with a woman his uncle disapproves of (because of her epilepsy) and a friend of her cousin, Johnny Boy, a near psychotic whose trouble-making threatens them all - he can't reconcile opposing values. A failed attempt to escape (to Brooklyn) moves them all a step closer to a bitter, almost preordained future.
