Scarface (1983): Against The Backdrop Of Violence, Bloodshed And Lunacy, Tony Montana Declares His Love For Elvira With One Of Cinema’s Most Honest, Most Romantic Speeches

In the following scene, taken from Brian De Palma’s 1983 crime film entitled Scarface, which drew considerable negative attention for its strong language, excessive violence, and glamorisation of drug use, criminal caricature Tony Montana (Al Pacino) — a Cuban immigrant intent upon establishing a drug-trafficking empire in Miami, Florida — declares his undying love for the boss’ lady, Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer).

The scene marks one of the few occasions on which the audience is able to see the otherwise ferocious, unstable and unmerciful character at his most vulnerable and humble. Admittedly, he spirals out of control thereon.
