Considered by many to be one of the greatest films of all time, the movie follows the saga of the Corleone crime family led by Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando), then later his son Michael (Al Pacino). Gangster films were no longer a popular genre when Paramount optioned Mario Puzo’s novel about an aging head of a crime family and the son reluctant to join the family business, but Francis Ford Coppola’s faithful and emotionally resonant film was a box office blockbuster as well as one of the most critically acclaimed American films of all time, with many of the finest actors of the modern era playing their first star-making roles. (USA, 1972, 177 min., Director: Francis Ford Coppola)
