The Godfather (1972)
Brief synopsis above.
The Godfather, Part II (1974)
Coppola tells two stories in Part II: the roots and rise of a young
Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension
of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents
who helped make The Godfather, Coppola has produced a movie of staggering
magnitude and vision, and undeniably the best sequel ever made. Robert
De Niro won an Oscar; the film received six Academy Awards, including
Best Picture of 1974.
The Godfather, Part III (1990)
In this third film in the epic Corleone trilogy, Al Pacino reprises
the role of powerful family leader Michael Corleone. Now in his 60's,
Michael is dominated by two passions: freeing his family from crime
and finding a suitable successor. That successor could be fiery Vincent
(Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope
of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence.
