Scorsese, De Niro, Schrader – the brilliant trio behind ›Taxi Driver‹ – at their best! A spectacular biopic about the rise and fall of boxer Jake LaMotta.

The meteoric rise of Italian-American middleweight LaMotta is followed by a rapid downfall. His ventures after his retirement from boxing also fail miserably and eventually land him in prison. What might initially seem like a classic underdog story is revealed to be so much more: a black-and-white tour de force, a meticulously composed masterpiece right down to the dynamic fight scenes, and a harrowing picture of toxic masculinity. Robert De Niro delivered one of the defining acting performances of the 20th century and took Method acting to new extremes: to embody LaMotta’s downfall, he put on 26 kilos.


Martin Scorsese, born in 1942, is one of the most famous US directors of all time. His films include cult classics such as ›Mean Streets‹ (1973), ›Taxi Driver‹ (1976), ›GoodFellas‹ (1990), ›Casino‹ (1995) and ›The Irishman‹ (2019).
