Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci
This Scorsese film had a big impact on me. Though a film on boxing, it went much deeper than that. It’s the story of a sportsman who wanted to achieve great heights. And while he is achieving great things in his professional life, his personal life is completely ruined. The stark contrast of life within and outside the ring makes you sit up and watch. Robert De Niro was amazing in the film. It’s fascinating to watch his transformation from a boxer to an overweight club owner. Watching the film made me realise that certain films are never really about a profession, but about human beings and their trials and tribulations in the backdrop of the profession.
