In the 1993 movies A Bronx Tale what happens to Calogero's mom Rosina. She sort of just dissappears after Calogero turns 17 but you see the dad (Deniro) quite a bit. Does she die? Divorce?

    Seventeen year old Calogero, during an argument with his Father, states that his Mother "Left." In my opinion, she leaves him for being a broke bus driver.

  • I literally just scanned the entire script for "mom", "mother", "she", "left" and "Rosina" and found no dialogue that indicates there was any discussion about Rosina leaving. Commented Sep 20, 2022 at 13:27

After some googleing + IMDB + Wiki, all I could find is that this seems to be an intentional ambiguity for the story. Either that or the writer just didn't think the character was interesting enough to write about after this point.


She didn't go anywhere. She is looking out the window when C and his father are returning home from the funeral parlor. Look real closely. Soon as they go into the building, she goes back inside.
