Mean Streets
Introduction

You don't make up for your sins in church. You do it on the streets... and so this movie begins its twisted tale of Charlie, an up and coming wise guy from Manhattan's Little Italy.

But the question is, can Charlie balance the love in his life, his friendships, his ambitions and his faith in the Church?

Task
 

Please answer the following questions in your journals;

  1. List things such as backgrounds and scenes you saw in the movie that no longer exist in New York City.

  2. Charlie has conflicts. Why can't he resolve the problems he has with;
    • His faith and practice of Catholism
    • His girlfriend Teressa
    • His friendship with Johnny Boy
    • His partnership with Micheal
    • his Uncle
    • His own self-image

  3. Is there a plot to this movie? Can you identify it?
