******SPOILERS****** Hard hitting yet sensitive story about a blue
collar family living in a working class neighborhood in the Bronx NY
and the ups and downs that they go through in the movie. The movie has
to do with an Italian/American family, the De Coco's. The De Coco's
have a son that's torn between being a construction worker and working
as a recreational assistant at a local hospital. In hospital Stony
want's to work with and help young children who have severe emotional
problems like his little brother Albert, Michael Hershewe.
Powerhouse performances by Tony Lo Bianco, Tommy De Coco, Paul Sorvino,
Chubby De Coco and a very young and electrifying Richard Gere as Stony
De Coco in one of his first major movie roles that showed the great
talent that he had long before he became a top Hollywood super-star.
Stony at first trying to live and work like his father Tommy and uncle
Chubby wanted him to he then begins to slowly lose his interest. Being
the sensitive type Stony finds it hard to live up to his father Tommy
macho image and how that mindset effects his little brother Albert
who's suffering from emotional problems due to having sever eating
There's also Tommy's womanizing that leads his wife Marie, Lelia
Goldoni, to try to have an affair with that weirdo Jackie, Raymond
Singer, who lives in her apartment building who always had eyes for
her. When Tommy finds out about this supposed affair ,from a phone call
from Jackie's mother, he goes haywire and almost kills Marie and ends
up himself in the hospital with what seemed like an emotional
breakdown. Stony seeing what this type of lifestyle was doing to his
parents leaves his job as a construction worker, that his father Tommy
broke his back to get him, and decides to leave with his younger
brother Albert for good. Stony in an attempt to say goodbye has an
emotionally packed confrontation with his father, Tommy, and uncle,
Chubby, that was the best of so many great scenes in the movie.
Simple yet powerful movies about people that Hollywood doesn't make too
many movies about these days. Another great scene in "Bloodbrothers"
was a talk between Chubby and his friend and bar owner Banion, Kenneth
McMillan, on how he threw his son Paulie, Bruce French, out of the
house when he found out that he was gay. Chubby tried to get both
father and son back together later by going to Buccellati jewelry on
Fifth Avenue where Paulie worked to get him to attend his fathers
birthday party. Chubby loses it when Paulie not only refused to show up
at the party but didn't even want to sign a birthday card for his
father that Chubby gave him. You could see the two different worlds
that both Chubby and Paulie lived in and how they just couldn't come to
any common ground on just a simple matter like that.
And there was also a moving story by Chubby that he told Banion in
regard to his son Paulie, that Banion felt he lost because of his gay
lifestyle, about his own son ,the son that Chubby lost who tragically
died in infancy. Almost in tears Chubby tells how he loved and looked
after his nephew Stony as that son who he lost and never lived to see
grow up. Also very good in the movie are Stony's two girlfriends Cherie
and Annette, Kristine De Bell & Marilu Henner, who more then anything
exemplified the two worlds that Stony was torn between.
"Bloodbrothers" is a forgotten movie until you see it and realize that
it was one of the most underrated motion pictures of the 1970's. A
touching moving and tragic film with a great and stirring musical score
that shows that there is nothing uninteresting about working people
when it's a movie about working people as good as "Bloodbrothers".
