“Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” The superlative second chapter in Francis Ford Coppola’s trilogy about family, power and violence.

Following Don Vito’s death, Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) takes over as head of the family. With ruthless determination, he begins to build a vast and powerful criminal empire. In Cuba, he meets the inscrutable Simon Roth (Lee Strasberg). Increasingly isolated from his wife Kaye (Diane Keaton) and his brother Fredo (John Cazale), Michael does everything it takes to protect the empire, cost what it may.

In a parallel narrative made up of flashbacks, the film also chronicles the rise of the young Don Vito (Robert De Niro). Within this intricate web of storytelling unfolds a family saga of epic proportions.
A summit of Method actors.
