Author: Liliana Raez
Location: Lima, Peru


Directed by: Martin Scorsese

Principal Cast:

Robert DeNiro- Charlie Montisanti (mob leader)
Edie Falco- Selma Montisanti ( DeNiro's wife)
Leonardo DiCaprio- Miguel Montisanti Mariatto (DeNiro's secret son)
Matt Damon- John Stronich (private investigator that will hunt DeNiro down)
Drea DeMatteo- Adriana Mariatto (DiCaprio's mother)
Maggie Smith- Julia Montisanti (DeNiro's mom with a boring performance because no film's perfect and also, I hate this b*tch)

There are many troubles being a gangster, but there's just one family and just one life.

Martin Scorsese's gangsters return in his latest film about the leader of Italian mob falling into decadence when his business with other gangsters leaders and his relationship with his wife fall apart plus: he'll discover he has a forgotten son in Venecia and he'll have to introduce him into the "family".

What Press Will Say:

Martin Scorsese got to be recognized with the Oscar this time. An incredible cast starring Robert DeNiro, Leonardo DiCaprio and an amazing Edie Falco plus the incredible writing of Kenneth Lonergan that gives the movie a funny touch make this the best mob movie since "The Godfather". With incredible Italian locations and an amazing cinematography by academy award winner Conrad P. Hall make this year's definitive Oscar winner so far. the most probable to become Oscar-winners are Edie Falco in the role of a desperate wife and Al Pacino with not so much screen-time but a hearth touching performance as the mob leader with aids. We wouldn't get shocked if we see something like this on the nomination morning.
