TIIE GODFATIIEB has a cast list that reads like a who’s who of post-war American cinema: Brando. Pacino, Caan. Keaton, Duvall. Add in the Oscar-winning sequel. and De Niro muscles into the family. Classic slabs of American cinema from the 705. this pair of gangster epics not only tells the violent and compelling story of one family’s loyalties and betrayals. but acts as a history of 20th century America through immigrant eyes. Television screenings can’t even hope to do justice to the scope of Francis Coppola's masterpieces; so when you're told that both The Godfather and The Godfather Part ii are due for cinema re- releases in new pn'nts. well obviously it’s an offer you can’t refuse.
The Godfather plays the Edinburgh F ilmhouse from Friday 5 July; the sequel takes over on Friday 2 August. Both ﬁlms play the Glasgow Film Theatre in September.
