Movie Info

A political filmmaker finds himself in Long Island for a weekend where he finds himself entangled with a high-living, jet set crowd. At first it is exciting, but soon he finds himself disillusioned by their shallowness. The film contains an early performance by Robert De Niro. Footage from Sam's Song was later re-edited into a completely different movie, known as both The Swap and Line of Fire, in which a man investigates the death of his brother. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Sam's Song

Except for being one of De Niro's first movies, there's not reason to have to see this. This movie is predictable and uneven and stupid, I hated it.

This film (originally started in 1969, but finished and released in 1980) is quite lousy. It's a prime example of amateur film making that should never have seen the light of day. The film has aged horribly, is incredibaly dated looking, and the story is totally cliched, unoriginal, and actually put me to sleep. The acting isn't much better. Even De Niro's small role (that's right, his role is a supporting role, despite receiving the major credits) is mediocre at best. I only know about this film because it cost $1 and came as a double feature with a low-budget Pesci film. Avoid it. That's the bottom line. It's really not worth your time.

A huge disappointment for many reasons, firstly the cover shows De Niro and he's only in it for a few minutes throughout. The plot was predictable and through most of the film I was bored, the best part about this film was the guy who played the main part and he's not even listed on here.
