An exclusive interview in New York with American director Martin Scorsese. He has received much critical acclaim for his films Mean Streets, Taxi Driver and above all, Raging Bull, considered by some critics to have been the film of the 80s. He is intrigued by the manipulative effect and power of moving images; violence is a recurring trend in many of his films. Scorsese's passion for film is well known, together with his work to preserve and restore old classics. His latest movie, Cape Fear, is a remake of the 1962 classic, updated for the 90s, in which Robert De Niro plays a psychopath, imprisoned for 14 years and set on revenge.
