Drawing on strong performances by Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, Francis Ford Coppola's continuation of Mario Puzo's Mafia saga set new standards for sequels that have yet to be matched or broken.
Widely regarded as on of the greatest film sequels of all time, this compelling continuation contrasting the life of Corleone father and son. Traces the problems of Michael Corleone in 1958 and that of a young immigrant Vito Corleone in 1917's Hell's Kitchen. Michael survives many misfortunes and Vito is introduced to a life of crime.
The film was released in 1974 to great critical acclaim, some even deeming it superior to the original. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards and the first sequel to win for Best Picture, its six Oscars included Best Director for Coppola, Best Supporting Actor for De Niro and Best Adapted Screenplay for Coppola and Puzo. Pacino won the BAFTA Award for Best Actor and received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor.
