Mid-1900s' Jewish gangsters in New York City is the theme of this movie, which, after a confusing beginning, becomes an effective vehicle for Robert De Niro. The plot finally takes off when a briefcase filled with money is found, and the real story begins. This is the "full" version, which is significantly better than the one originally released which had been chopped to a point that it often didn't make sense.
