United States, 1974 / 202 Mins
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Starring: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro
This brilliant companion piece to the original 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, and the ascension of Michael as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents who helped make The Godfather, this is a film of staggering magnitude and vision, and undeniably the best sequel ever made.
