The Godfather: Part III (1990)

Duration 2h 42m Rating (UK) 15
Source of story The original book and the first two films, and some real events in the 1980s.
Writer/s Script Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola
Additional Info There is almost unlimited secondardy info about this movie, much of it about the casting of Sofia Coppola as Mary Corleone. I found the romance between Vincent (introduced just like a soap character) and Mary fatuous.
Director Francis Ford Coppola
Starring Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Andy Garcia, Eli Wallach, Joe Mantega, George Hamilton, Bridget Fonda, Sofia Coppola
Elevator Pitch Michael is attempting to become legitimate by investing in an international company partially owned by the Vatican. Charitable money changes hands, but much of the programme is frustrated by other shareholders, so in the end drastic and illegal action has to be taken.
Content Various parties, discussions in darkened rooms, a surprising amount of time in the Sicilian scenery. Some minor and a bit of really major violence. A very long time at an opera in Sicilly while doubteful activies are taking place, in some ways reflecting the action on stage.
A View A sombre movie with some occasional flashbacks, and wonderful use of the theme tune which made me, in 2017, look back nostalgically at my own youth. On the downside I really felt that much time was spent setting the scene for a Part IV (never to be made because Mario Puzo died). It was much nomiated, but won little and was universally considered to be not as good as either of the other two.
