The Brooklyn Banker :- Watch The Brooklyn Banker on Youtube on Fire,The story of Santo Bastucci, a local banker with a rare gift for memorizing numbers; he is unwittingly cast into the forefront of an aging wiseguy’s bid for power, Manny “The Hand” Mistera. Santo is caught between the loyalty he has for his cagey father-in-law, Benny, his childhood friend, Basta, and his streetwise uncle, Matteo, the pastor of their Brooklyn church. Cauth this film at its’New York City premier, and I congratulate the production team for a job well done. I’ve been following the progress of this indie film for close to a year. It began as a short titled “Lilies of the Feast,”which was the original title of the feature version.The story works, you just got go with it and then – boom – a surprise ending. No spoilers here. Set in Brooklyn in the 1970’s, with a good feel for life back then.Good casting by Eve Battaglia – with particularly good work by lead Troy Garity, and David Provale at his best. An excellent directing debut by Federico Castelluccio. If you like the mob genre, then watch this film Santo has an unusual trait — namely, the ability to memorize large groups of numbers like an Italian Rainman — that attracts the interest of local crime kingpin Manny (David Proval), whose nickname is “The Hand” for his propensity for removing those of his enemies. So when Manny calls Santo into his office to propose that he use his talents to participate in a bogus check-cashing scheme, Santo finds it an offer he unfortunately can’t refuse.Simultaneously encouraged by the affable Benny to cooperate and warned by his Uncle Matteo (Arthur J. Nascarella), the streetwise pastor of his church, to be careful, Santo further finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place when he attracts the interest of a seemingly affable Secret Service agent (John Bedford Lloyd) who’s trying to put Manny away.
