An emotionally self-destructive boxer's journey through life, as the violence and temper that leads him to the top in the ring destroys his life outside it.
The real Jake LaMotta has been deaf for most of his life, so most of his anger came out of not understanding what people were saying. He has a 30% use in his right ear, and 70% in the left.
Jake La Motta:
I remember those cheers / They still ring in my ears / After years, they remain in my thoughts. / Go to one night / I took off my robe, and what'd I do? I forgot to wear shorts. / I recall every fall / Every hook, every jab / The worst way a guy can...
When Jake is in the bathroom pouring ice water down his pants, the bruise on his eye has disappeared.
The film is in black and white, but during the opening credits, the title is in red letters.
