This brilliant companion piece to the original 'The Godfather' continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family.

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.

The film received six Academy Awards in 1975, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Director: Francis Ford Coppola

Cast: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, John Cazale

5 Stars

"Francis Coppola’s breathtakingly ambitious prequel-sequel to his first Godfather movie is as gripping as ever. It is even better than the first film, and has the greatest single final scene in Hollywood history, a real coup de cinéma."

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
