No wonder this movie won the Academy Award for best picture in 1972 - it's great! And timeless, since even today the acting and storyline are topnotch. Obviously, since it's about the mafia, it is violent - viewer beware. But the violence seems very plausible and fits with the story. Each character is developed so well, even many of the "side" characters. Fun to watch Al Pacino and Robert Duvall at the beginning of their very successful careers.

There is nothing I can say that will do this movie justice. Possibly the greatest movie of all time.

Glamour

Our Daily Free Stream: Francis Ford Coppola - The Godfather Legacy. Was macht Francis Ford Coppola heute? Er hat keine Schulden mehr, baut Wein an und kann so seine Filme aus eigener Tasche bezalhen. Wir zeigen heute die Doku The Godfather Legacy. - Es ist merkwürdig: Als Francis Ford Coppolas Meisterwerk 1972 ins Kino kam, nahm man das Gangster-Epos wahr als Film, der alles Glamouröse einer solchen Gangster-Existenz einfach negierte. Was blieb übrig? Fragwürdige Loyalitäten einer gewalttätigen Nachbarschaft in Brooklyn. Heute gilt The Godfather als der glamouröseste aller Mafia Thriller. Mario Puzos Vorlage aber erzählt nicht von der grossen weiten Welt des Verbrechens. Er konzentriert sich auf die Innenansichten eines kleinen Kreises. In The Godfather kennt jeder jeden. Anders als in Pu...

Such a freaking classic.

Don Vito Corleone: "You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?".

The godfather to me is a bloody brilliant masterpiece of a film and people may say it is not they cup of tea and am okay with that but this movie changed the way that I thought of movies, the story is about a man called Don Vito Corleone who has this big family and big friends and all in the middle of all of that the family and friends don't know that he works with the gangsters, The acting is out of this world and the music is so chilling and moving with a gangster feel mixed with it, R.I.P. Marlon Brando you beautiful man your brilliant actor bring us a strong Character in the movie that you deserved more then one Oscar and this movie deserved more then 3 Oscars it dese...

My 100th Review: The Godfather

This is a special event for me, because this is my 100th review, so I thought: why not do something special this time and review the film that contributed to my early love for film, the official king of all movies?
So here it is: my review for 'The Godfather'.

Rarely does a movie influence something. Especially today. After all, it is just a movie. it would take a lot to change something in a person.
For a long time, I had forgotten about the Godfather and started dismissing it as overrated.
Then I remembered, what I owed this movie.
It truly is life-changing for me, when something as simple as a fictional flick can change you in a way that you stop looking at movies as flicks, and start to refer to them as art. The Godfather is a good example that displays this, because this, alon...
