Godfather

December 7th, 2011 · 3 Comments

One of the recent Sundays, I watched the movie, Godfather. I first watched the second half on TV, and then the first half on DVD! Quite an amazing movie. I had read the book many years ago. It all comes so alive on the screen.

The defining scene which had even struck in memory even when I had read the book was when Michael Corleone takes on the challenge and kills the two people in the restaurant. In that one instant, his life changes completely.

I tried watching Godfather II, but gave up about a third of the way through the movie. It was getting way too complicated for me. Even with help from the Wikpedia page which tells the story in detail, I could not sustain interest in the movie.

    Generally when a book is made into a movie the book is better than the movie

    People often groan about Hollywood destroy the spirit of the novel in making. There are cases where adaptations outshine the original literary works from which they are derived.
