‘The Deer Hunter’ Movie Summary
In The Deer Hunter, Michael, Nick, and Steven are Russian-American buddies and steel workers from a small Pennsylvania town who are heading to serve in Vietnam (Portrayed by Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, and John Savage, respectively). Before they deploy, Steven marries Angela (who is expecting a child that is not his). At the wedding reception, Michael eyes Linda but Nick acts and proposes marriage to her. Also at the reception, the three men encounter a returned Green Beret. The soldier sullenly sits at the bar and only responds with “F- it” to the men’s salutations.
There is a lot of foreshadowing in the wedding scenes. The bride spills wine on her dress after being told that it would be unlucky. A naked Michael promises Nick that he will bring him back home to Clairton.
For one last hoorah, the friends and hunting partners are joined by Stan (John Cazale), John, and Axel (Chuck Aspegren) in a going away hunting trip in the mountains. Michael kills a deer with one shot. He proclaims that “A deer has to be taken with one shot. I try to tell people that but they don’t listen.”read full summary
