Before adapting Mario Puzzo's roman, the Godfather, to cinema, Francis Ford Coppola had very little legitimacy in Hollywood and had everything to prove. After months of bitter fights against the Studios which produced the film, the Godfather was eventually released in 1972 to an impressed audience. Coppola very little experience as a scenario writer, and had received an Oscar in 1970 for Patton in the best scenario category. The Godfather, which has once been rated as the best movie of all times by Entertainment Weekly has met tremendous success around the world, partly owing to the actors, and mainly because of its director. The very special atmosphere in the film is due to Coppola's way of integrating parts of his experience of life. It is also considered a true "family movie" that is to say that Coppola gathered all his family in the film, and therefore re-invented the mafia-genre, although the terms "mafia" or "Cosa Nostra" are cited only once in the trilogy. I chose present an introduction of these films, if you don't already know them by heart, because it occurred to me that this masterpiece is one of the few films that remain in memories generation after generation.
