If you want to call yourself a film connoisseur, you must have seen “ The Godfather ” and “ The Godfather II ”. The style-defining mafia chronicles by Francis Ford Coppola are not only among the most important, but also among the greatest masterpieces of American cinema. A bit far in the shadow of the two ultra-classics, » The Godfather III » ekes out its existence, which certainly hasn’t failed, but can by no means hold a candle to the two iconic predecessors.
Of course, Francis Ford Coppola, who filmed “The Godfather III” in 1990 primarily for financial reasons, is also aware of this. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary, however, the director once again put his hand to the end of the trilogy in order to create a rounder, more coherent version. He succeeded. The new, smoother and 11-minute shorter edited version, » The Godfather — The Death of Michael Corleone — Epilogue » is now available for subscription on Amazon Prime Video .

That’s what «The Godfather 3» is about
Mafia godfather Michael Corleone ( Al Pacino ) — now elderly and grey-haired — has tried everything over the past twenty years to somehow get out of the illegality of his business. His daughter Mary ( Sofia Coppola ) runs the Corleone Foundation, which presents the church with a $100 million check for charitable work in Sicily. Son Anthony ( Franc D’Ambrosio ), however, refuses to take any position in the family company.
With the help of his mother Kay ( Diane Keaton ), he achieves his dream of becoming an opera singer. Michael’s nephew, son of his brother Sonny ( James Caan ), who was brutally murdered years ago , Vincent Mancini-Corleone ( Andy Garcia ), is in no way inferior to his father: he is a hot-blooded, choleric man who believes the only way to defeat his enemies is through murder be able.
