Description

Details

Godfathers I & 2 are in the BFI Top 50, at positions 21 and 31, respectively.

The first film stars Marlon Brando as Don Corleone, an ageing Mafia ‘Godfather’, and Al Pacino as Michael, the youngest son who takes up the mantle despite his better intentions, The Godfather is a vast fresco of family life that is also a compelling account of the ruthless machinations of a criminal empire.

Revisiting the 1930s Hollywood trend for gangster movies, Coppola moved the genre in a grandiose, near-operatic new direction, assisted by Nino Rota’s lilting score and cinematography by Gordon Willis that’s full of inky darknesses.

Godfather Part II continues the Corleone family story, charting in parallel young Vito’s earlier rise to prominence. 

Sequels had not yet become the Hollywood norm when Francis Ford Coppola signed up for a continuation to his hugely successful 1972 adaptation of Mario Puzo’s novel The Godfather, but this second film set a high standard for follow-ups in the way that it enriches and deepens the Corleone family narrative.

Ranging over multiple locations, Coppola’s film ambitiously intertwines two time periods: the story of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) becoming increasingly consumed and isolated by his new power as head of the family, and flashbacks to his father Vito Corleone’s (Robert De Niro) arrival as an immigrant in New York, and his gradual ascent to power.
