"When I was four years old, I played in the basement of our home where my father, Carmine, kept jugs of wine. In my attempt to carry a jug across the room, I slid a pencil through the glass loop. The pencil snapped in two and the jug shattered on the floor. That night my father came home with a white pastry box of my favorite dessert – Cannoli – but he was so angry about the broken jug of wine there was no cannoli for me!"– Francis Ford Coppola. He was a central figure in the New Hollywood filmmaking movement of the 1960s and 1970s. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest filmmakers of all time
Schooled in low-budget filmmaking, Francis Ford Coppola has gone on to direct some of the most financially successful and critically praised movies in U.S. cinematic history, including The Godfather and Apocalypse Now. I asked about Scorsese, particularly about the difference between The Godfather and Goodfellas. Goodfellas, great as it is, always seemed to me a riff or comment on Coppola’s trilogy. The Godfather is Bible. Goodfellas is Talmud. The Godfather is Opera. Goodfellas is Rock ‘n’ Roll. There is in fact a bit of dialogue in GF2, spoken by Corleone capo Frank Pentangeli, that perfectly explains the difference between the movies. “Mike, I don’t understand, I don’t—look—I don’t have your brain—uh—for big deals—but this is a street thing.” “Marty knew a lot more about those kind of people than I did because he lived right in the city, in Little Italy, on Elizabeth Street,” Coppola said. “I lived on Long Island and my family were musicians. Even Mario Puzo, who wrote the book, didn’t know anything about the real guys like Marty did. Marty saw it firsthand. Mario didn’t, but really did it through research. All those sayings, you know, ‘I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse,’ were things his mother used to say.” As an example of how much he and Puzo got wrong, he said, “He would never be called Don Corleone. He’d be called Don Vittone. Like if you wanted to call me Don, you would call me Don Francesco or Don Ciccio. You wouldn’t call me Don Coppola. Yet because of the book and the film’s impression, the world says Don Corleone even though in Italian that’s the stupidest. It shows you know nothing.”

Widely acclaimed as one of Hollywood's most innovative and influential film directors, Coppola epitomized a group of filmmakers known as the New Hollywood Coppola and Puzo originally wanted the title to be The Death of Michael Corleone but this was not acceptable to Paramount Pictures. Coppola has stated that The Godfather film series is in fact two films, The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, and Part III is the epilogue. Part III received mixed to positive reviews, grossed $136,766,062 and was nominated for seven Academy Awards.
'The Godfather' cast, including Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, James Caan, Talia Shire and Robert Duvall, reunited at the Tribeca Film Festival for 45th anniversary Continuing to make outstanding films, Coppola produced the riveting Vietnam War drama Apocalypse Now in 1979. Starring Martin Sheen, the film was an imaginative retelling of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. Coppola also served as the executive producer on the family-friendly classic The Black Stallion that same year. In the 1980s and 1990s, he made several films, ranging from personal drama surrounding a group of wayward teenagers in The Outsiders (1983) to glittering jazz age saga The Cotton Club (1984) to the faithful adaptation of the classic vampire tale Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992). He also created the final chapter to his mafia trilogy, The Godfather Part III (1990). My name is Francis Ford Coppola only because my brother was August Floyd Coppola and I wanted to be like him, Coppola told me. He was the one who was brilliant and handsome, and he started to be interested in literature and began to write. So when he began to write I used to fantasize that he.. He stood, looked out the window. Red roofs, chimneys, sky. He’s come to the third act of his life, the September of his years, as he told me one way or another again and again. He is currently at work on what may be his final film, a last great opus. He compared it to Buddenbrooks, the Thomas Mann novel. “Buddenbrooks is about three generations of a mercantile family in Germany and the changes in Germany during the grandfather’s time, the father’s time, and the time of the author,” Coppola said. “I’ve taken stories of my grandfather’s time, my father’s time, and then my generation. I asked myself, ‘What is the most important thing that’s happened since World War II?’ I decided it was television, because everything we saw, whether it was the death of President Kennedy, the civil-rights movement, Vietnam, we saw through television. So I wanted to do a piece about three generations set against the birth, growth, and ultimate resolution of television into the Information Age.” Uganda adoptions (6 Videos).

Francis Ford Coppola (Copyright © 1999 Piero Scaruffi | Legal restrictions - Termini d'uso ). The story alternates with musical numbers. Coppola directs it in a surreal, oniric, almost psychedelic way, indulging in Kafkian atmospheres, in decadent and sophisticated scenes Coppola leaned back, put a hand on his chin: this is between you and your father, he told me, and he’s in a better position to judge, but it’s fascinating how everything goes right back to the family, birth order, sibling rivalry, who gets the blessing, who gets the curse. “That’s what I saw when I analyzed the book,” he said. “In a way, the three sons each represented a component of Don Corleone: when he had to be angry, he could do it, he could kill somebody. [Sonny.] He could also be sweet. [Fredo.] He could be cold. [Michael.] He had all the elements of a complete individual, and each of his sons got one of his characteristics. So I thought it was a story of succession.”The family travels to Sicily. Michael tells Vincent to speak with Don Altobello and, in order to see where the old man's loyalties lie, to intimate to him his intentions of leaving the Corleone family, under the pretense that his affair with Mary still exists, and that his loyalty to Michael has been supplanted by his desire to continue the relationship. Altobello supports the idea of Vincent switching his allegiance, and introduces him to Licio Lucchesi, the man behind the plot to prevent Michael's acquisition of Immobiliare.

Raja Sen picks his top 10 favourites from Coppola's cinematic vineyard Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Richard Bright and Talia Shire reprise their roles from the first two films. According to Coppola's audio commentary on the film in The Godfather DVD Collection, Robert Duvall refused to take part unless he was paid a salary comparable to Pacino's. On an episode of Inside the Actors Studio, Duvall said he understood that Pacino was the star but felt insulted by the difference in their salaries, saying "if they paid Pacino twice what they paid me, that's fine, but not three or four times, which is what they did." When Duvall dropped out, Coppola rewrote the screenplay to portray Tom Hagen as having died before the story begins. Coppola created the character B. J. Harrison, played by George Hamilton, to replace the Hagen character in the story. The director further states that, to him, the movie feels incomplete "without Robert Duvall's participation." According to Coppola, had Duvall agreed to take part in the film, the Hagen character would have been heavily involved in running the Corleone charities. Coppola’s breakthrough came with The Godfather (1972), a brilliant, enormously successful, muscular adaptation of Mario Puzo’s blockbuster novel of the same name. A huge box-office hit (the fifth highest-grossing film of the 1970s), The Godfather was also lauded by critics and was ranked third on the American Film Institute’s 1998 list of the top 100 American films of all time. A violent, emotionally charged exploration of a Mafia family, The Godfather is a mythic gangster film, but it is also the story of a father and his sons. Marlon Brando won the Academy Award for best actor for his portrayal of the title capo, Vito Corleone. John Cazale, Caan, and Al Pacino played his sons and Duvall his trusted adviser (the last three were nominated for best supporting actor awards). Coppola was nominated as best director, and he and Puzo won the award for best adapted screenplay.
All of the Coppola children were driven to succeed in show business and the arts. Coppola's father, who had achieved success as a musician for hire but longed to compose scores (write music) of his own, led by example. Francis seemed the least likely to fulfill his father's dreams, however. He was an awkward child who did poorly at school. At age nine he was stricken with polio, a crippling disease that usually occurs in children. The illness forced him into bed for a year, a period during which he played with puppets, watched television, and became lost in an inner fantasy world. After his recovery he began to make movies with an eight-millimeter camera and a tape recorder. Francis was fascinated by movies as a child. Some of his favorites were Dracula, The Thief of Baghdad, and Walt Disney cartoons. Uznany amerykański reżyser Francis Ford Coppola, równie wielką miłością, co kino darzy podróże i odkrywanie świata.

Francis Ford Coppola The Coppola film that best captures his interior landscape is probably Apocalypse Now. Not the film so much as the story of the film, the insane ambition, the budget that got out of hand, happiness and misery in the jungle, cost overruns, dancing on the edge of defeat—Martin Sheen had a heart attack; Brando had not read the book—snatching this valuable thing out of chaos.

So I went home, and one day I read in the paper that British Honduras was becoming Belize, and it sounded exciting—a new nation means it can be Utopia. So I took my big boy, Gio, to Belize, and in the course of looking for an island we found a beautiful spot where there wasn’t a road, no electricity, this forlorn place that had once been a resort. It was abandoned but had an airstrip. So I said something that has gotten me in more trouble than I can relate: ‘Oh, I could write here.’ I bought it for around $40,000 and fixed it up. My boys loved it. They would get Mohawk haircuts and we became the Swiss Family Robinson. Then, right nearby, there was an archaeological discovery. So mine ended up being the closest lodge to a Mayan ruin everyone wanted to visit. That’s how it began.”
The Palazzo turned out to be the perfect place to prepare for my rendezvous with Coppola. In many ways, the resort and the town seem to be in dialogue with The Godfather, especially GF2. The shadows, the winding cobblestone lanes, the way many streets end at a cliff—immortality, death—the surprisingly blue skies; the men at sidewalk tables, beneath awnings, sitting over porcelain cups filled with coffee as black as tar and as intense as anisette, the drink Johnny Ola asks for when he sits with Michael in Nevada to discuss “the Jew in Miami”; the high-ceilinged rooms—they go for as much as $1,950 a night—the villa itself, which Coppola purchased from a pair of elderly sisters; the arches that lead to the enclosed garden where Sofia Coppola married Thomas Mars, of the band Phoenix, and which is said to be the only 19th-century Italian-style garden in Basilicata, a wild region of Southern Italy once filled with brigands—it’s all straight out of the movies. Coppola’s Uncle Anton, last of his generation, said he expected to see Adam and Eve in that garden, but most of us will be on the lookout for the Old Don, cutting an orange peel into fangs, chasing his grandson through the tomato plants in those last happy moments.

With the help of his new lawyer B.J.

While in Vatican City, Michael learns that several influential parties oppose the deal for many reasons, not the least of which is the extensive criminal history that has tarnished the Corleone name. Coupled with the failing health of Pope Paul VI, ratification of the deal will be far more complicated than Michael had anticipated.

I sat there one afternoon and watched GF2, in which Vito returns to Corleone, Sicily, to fulfill a vendetta. Watching it in this place was strange. It was like being a Jew at the Western Wall, a Muslim making the hajj, or a Cubs fanatic at Wrigley Field. I’d reached the navel of the world, passed through the screen into the backstory. Coppola wanted me to visit partly because the Palazzo says much about him, partly because it needs publicity.

The Godfather tells the sweeping story of the Corleone crime family, focusing on the rise of young Michael Corleone to control of the family's empire. Propelling the drama forward are powerful performances by Marlon Brando (1924–) and newcomer Al Pacino (1940–). After its release in 1972, critics were floored by the film's depiction of America's criminal underworld. The film became a sensational hit with moviegoers as well, and The Godfather swept the Academy Awards that year. Coppola was a winner in the Best Director and Best Screenplay categories. Francis Ford Coppola, (born April 7, 1939, Detroit, Michigan, U.S.), American motion-picture director, writer, and producer whose films range from sweeping epics to small-scale character studies. As the director of films such as The Godfather (1972), The Conversation (1974), and Apocalypse Now (1979), he enjoyed his greatest success and influence in the 1970s, when he attempted to create an alternative to the Hollywood system of film production and distribution.In addition to his own work, Coppola has many relatives in the film industry. His sister is actress Talia Shire, and his nephew is actor Nicolas Cage. In addition to daughter Sofia, he and wife Eleanor also have a son named Roman who directs and acts as well. Their late son, Gian-Carlo Coppola, was an actor. He died in a boating accident in 1986. Gian-Carlo's daughter, Gia Coppola, made her first foray into directing and screenwriting with 2013's Palo Alto. While a student at Great Neck High School on Long Island, Coppola began to study filmmaking more formally. He soon became enchanted with the work of director Sergei Eisenstein (1898–1948). Coppola also trained in music and theater to round out his education. In 1956 he enrolled at Hofstra College in Hempstead, New York, on a drama scholarship. Here he acted in and directed student productions, and he founded his own cinema (movie) workshop. So determined was Coppola to direct his own pictures that he once sold his car to pay for a 16-millimeter camera.

In his review, Roger Ebert stated that it is "not even possible to understand this film without knowing the first two". Nonetheless, Ebert wrote an enthusiastic review, awarding the film three-and-a-half stars, a better rating than he gave The Godfather Part II. He also defended the casting of Sofia Coppola, who he felt was not miscast, stating, "There is no way to predict what kind of performance Francis Ford Coppola might have obtained from Winona Ryder, the experienced and talented young actress, who was originally set to play this role. But I think Sofia Coppola brings a quality of her own to Mary Corleone. A certain up-front vulnerability and simplicity that I think are appropriate and right for the role."

The violent criminal element of the Corleone family has been largely abandoned, ostracized by Michael as well as the public, which no longer romanticizes the gangster lifestyle. Michael has embraced corporate America, which is now more tolerant of Michael's nihilism. He has rebuilt the Corleone interests as a legitimate enterprise using the blood money from his gangster years. The thugs and soldiers from Michael's past (Al Neri, Willie Cicci, Calò, etc). have either died, gone into the underground, or have been relegated to the background, serving as bodyguards for Michael and his family. Michael now struggles between repairing his fragile relationships while trying to contain the violent criminals that are still a part of his decaying criminal empire. In an attempt to break with the past, Michael has created a charity, the Vito Corleone Foundation, in memory of his father. At a ceremony in St. Patrick's Cathedral, presided over by Archbishop Gilday, Michael is named a Commander of the Order of St. Sebastian.

By Francis Ford Coppola. Born in 1939 and being as a child of a scientific leaning, I was drawn to and fascinated by the new wonder of my time, television. For a year I saw no children other than my brother and sister. With pleasure and longing, I watched the Horn and Hardart's Children's Hour.. Coppola first gained international critical attention for his screenwriting talents, earning an Academy Award for 1970’s Patton. Two years later, he released what is considered to be one of his best works, The Godfather (1972). Based on a novel by Mario Puzo, the critically acclaimed saga centered on the Corleones, an Italian American family involved in organized crime. Marlon Brando played the family’s patriarch and Al Pacino as his son and reluctant successor. Coppola received his first nomination as director from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He also scored second screenplay win, and the film won for Best Picture. The sequel, The Godfather Part II (1974) was equally well received.
“Yeah, he was still Nicolas Coppola then. So my brother, as he got older, show business was just odious to him. He hated that all his relatives were in movies and theater. My father had been a failed—but brilliant—flute player, a prodigy, but he hated it because he wanted to be a composer and conductor and his younger brother was a successful Broadway conductor. So when I became successful, my father had a son who could give him his opportunity. He started to identify with me, and I’m sure that hurt my brother.”“George [Lucas] is kind of a genius,” Coppola continued, “but I think it’s a pity he got so [absorbed in that one franchise]. I hope George isn’t offended, but the truth of the matter is that Star Wars cost us 10 new George Lucas films that would have been wonderful.”
The director began collaborating with his father, Carmine, who’d studied at Juilliard and played under Arturo Toscanini for the NBC Symphony Orchestra, in the 1940s. Carmine composed music for all three Godfather films and Apocalypse Now, among others. His work on GF2 won him an Academy Award. He famously composed the score for F.F.C.’s production of Abel Gance’s silent-screen masterpiece, Napoleon, dazzlingly performed by a live orchestra at Radio City Music Hall in New York in 1981.Coppola had three children—that past tense is painful. Because there had been Gian-Carlo, who worked with his father (F.F.C. still refers to him as “my big boy”); Roman, a successful filmmaker in his own right; and Sofia, who is probably better known among millennials than the old man. But Gian-Carlo died in 1986, off Annapolis, Maryland, during the making of Gardens of Stone, which included, in its cast, Ryan O’Neal’s son Griffin. One day, Gian-Carlo went boating with Griffin, who zipped between two larger vessels, which, unbeknownst to him, were attached by a towline. O’Neal ducked but Coppola took the full force of the cable. It killed him instantly. Many of us would respond to such a tragedy by going into ourselves and never coming out. Coppola has seemingly done the opposite, though you can never really know. He’s filled with appreciation, love, grateful for life, while never forgetting what he lost, which is everything. At the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011, Coppola teared up as he spoke of his son, whose death he long blamed on himself. Which makes no sense, until you hear him explain why—because we blame ourselves for everything that happens to our kids.“Marty is brilliant without a doubt, but he was troubled when he was younger,” Coppola went on. “So I was interested in him, again, like a brother. There was a real family feeling amongst that group. I cooked for them, and we had our own place and facility. All we could afford was good sound equipment ... so we developed movies with great soundtracks: Star Wars, Apocalypse Now. So we did make a contribution.”Because he seemed to have so much luck, good and bad, I asked Coppola if he could tell me the secret of life. It’s a question I often ask older people in case they know. Most of them wave me off, but the director took me seriously. “The secret of life is to say yes all the time,” he said, “because when you’re old, you don’t want to say, ‘I wish I’d done this, I wish I had done that.’ When I die I’m going to say, ‘I got to be in the movie business. I got to see my kids go into the movie business. I got to be in the wine business. I got to be in the hotel business. I got to see my father win an Oscar.’ I’m going to be saying all that and when I die I’m not even going to notice.” Well, of course as you know, Sofia Coppola is the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, so you could say that she was born with a camera in her hand. She was born in New York in 1971 while her father was making the film 'The Godfather', and in fact she actually appeared in the film.. Francis Ford Coppola attributes his success to thinking like a six-year-old boy all his life. He has produced 72 movies and directed 33, including Coppola: You come to know your actors very well. You go through a process in which you make the actor feel comfortable and relaxed and not frightened
