Once upon a time in America

Sergio Leone’s last movie from 1984. This melancholic gangster-epic of epic length (227 min.) follows the friendship between Noodles (Robert de Niro) and Maxie (James Woods). The story is told from the 30’s till 1968. Just like every Leone movie stilistic highly justified. Including a few vehemently violent scenes and of course the lovely atmospheric music of Ennio Morricone.
