This review is for Part 1:

I thought Roberto and Paolo had very good interaction, they seemed to have become good friends off camera, because they seemed very comfortable with each other, especially in the barn scenes, After reading Benjamin's review, I chose not to watch the 2nd disk, unless maybe there might be Special Feat.s on it, I'd watch those, but I will not willingly subject myself to movie gore and violence anymore! I was glad to see that the movie started with the boys and wasn't in a retrospect, with the adult of one of the characters telling story of his childhood. I did see enough of DeNiro's scenes to tell that he spoke his lines in English, and I did notice that some of the actors were speaking there's in there own language, in one scene one actor was speaking in English and the other was speaking, I believe, Italian, but it had been Dubbed to English, because their lips were off track with the words being uttered! Like a Japanese fight movie! ;)

All funning aside, I liked this movie as far as the boys went, but stopped after they were done, so I didn't have to watch the violence. So my rating for Roberto and Paolo's scenes is a 9.5!

Too much violence spoiled my first impression of a beautiful film. Still I will rate this work with a maximum score.
