Screenplay | Script

Written By: Francis Ford Coppola & Mario Puzo

THE GODFATHER PART II: This brilliant companion piece to the original The Godfather continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. Coppola tells two stories in Part II: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don.

I know it was you, Fredo. You've broken my heart.

Michael Corleone,
