About an American crime film!

The Godfather is a crime film directed by Francis Ford Coppola. It is the greatest and most influential film ever made. The film is based on Puzo’s best-selling 1969 novel of the same title. The Godfather trilogy is the first installment; from 1945 to 1955, the Corleone family was under patriarch Vito Corleone. The film focuses on the transformation of his youngest son, Michael Corleone, from a reluctant family outsider to a mafia boss.  

The list of The Godfather movies

  • The Godfather – 1972
  • The Godfather – 1974
  • The Godfather – 1990

The three Godfather movies are connected because they follow the Corleone family from the 1940s to the 1980s. Michael Corleone is the main character in all three; his family and allies are the same.
