 A Bronx tale (Metro Times Detroit)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The Bronx couldn’t be accused of overseeing some calculated exercise to filch maximum cash from a corporate giant; rather, the band and their manager figured a way to use a record company for the band’s needs, and not the other way around.
Despite the six-stringed chaos he generates in the Bronx, the 27-year-old (“I’m the old man of the band”) is a frank and lucid conversationalist, a kind of benevolent Johnny Rotten.
With the weight of expectations that inevitably befall a band on a major, particularly in the wake of an industry-hyped shitstorm, the Bronx — as loudmouthed keepers of the flame — are in an unenviable position: They could be the desirable, out of control party-girl who three years later is a cautionary tale.

 Emanuel Levy : Review - A Bronx Tale
The good news--and relief to many of us--is that Bronx Tale is not a derivative, or second-hand Martin Scorsese, as one might expect from an actor whose best work has been in movies directed by Scorsese (Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, King of Comedy, etc.).
The first--and better--is set in l960, when Calogero (Francis Capra) is an alert 9-year-boy, spending most of his leisure at the street corner of his house and befriending its mobsters and thugs.
The tale then jumps ahead to l968, with the adolescent Calogero portrayed by another excellent actor, Lillo Brancato, who bears some physical resemblance to the young De Niro.

While often labeled a ‘gangster’ film, A Bronx Tale isn’t exactly that, and in some ways is actually the flip side of another De Niro picture where a youth is captivated by the lure of the local mobsters.
« At eight years old, Calogero witnesses Sonny commit murder on a Bronx street over a “parking space.” The local mob soldiers who run the neighborhood already captivate the young man and Calogero’s refusal to “rat them out.” brings the boy into their world.
Furthermore, the neighborhood that is supposed to be the Bronx is actually Astoria, Queens.
