glimpse of De Niro's genius sparkle in this one
21 June 2004 | by (Bruges, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This movie is the oldest one I've seen of Robert De Niro. I got it for a present from my cousin who knows I'm a die-hard De Niro freak.

The quality of the DVD wasn't excellent, but what can one expect from an almost forty-year old flick. "Sam's Song" is the small story of one Sam Nicoletti. He tries to write and make a living but isn't really succeeding. He gets invited by friends for a weekend. There he tries to relax and enjoy the moment of getting out of his boring life. Eventually some small things happen like couple's betrayal and some weekend loving. If you're a real De Niro fan you just have to see it once. He is the only positive thing in this movie from John C. Broderick and John Shade.

I gave this one a 6/10. The film isn't great, script is just below average, screen quality is mediocre... but De Niro shows early glimpse of his genius!
