“Friendship and money: oil and water” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part III obtuvo 7 nominaciones al Oscar (incluidos Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Andy Garcia, Best Director: Coppola, y Best Cinematography: Gordon Willis). No ganó ningún Oscar.

Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen) no quiso participar en la película porque consideró “inaceptable” que a Al Pacino le pagaran 5 veces más que a él.

The Godfather. Part III no es tan genial como The Godfather y The Godfather. Part II, pero es una película buenísima. Otra joya de Coppola y un brillante, inesperado y doloroso final.

Lo mejor: Joe Mantegna y la confesión de Michael.

Lo peor: el peinado de Al Pacino.

“Friendship and money: oil and water” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part III got Oscar nominations (including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Andy Garcia, Best Director: Coppola, and Best Cinematography: Gordon Willis). It didn’t win any Oscar.

Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen) didn’t want to be in the movie because he considered  it “unacceptable” that Al Pacino would earn 5 times more than him.

The Godfather. Part III is not so amazing as The Godfather and The Godfather. Part II, but nevertheless it is a really good movie. Another Coppola gem, and a brilliant, unexpected and painful end.

The best: Joe Mantegna and Michael’s confession.

The worst: Al Pacino’s hairdo.

“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part II obtuvo 11 nominaciones al Oscar. Ganó 6 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Robert De Niro; Best Director: Coppola, Best Writing, Screenplay Adapted from Other Material: Coppola & Mario Puzo, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration: Tavoularis, Graham & Nelson, y Best Music, Original Dramatic Score: Nino Rota & Carmine Coppola).

John Cazale (Fredo), al igual que en The Godfather (1972), tampoco fue nominado por su brillante e inolvidable actuación.

De Niro no estuvo presente en los Oscar.

Lo mejor: Robert De Niro, John Cazale, Lee Strasberg (Hyman Roth), la cinematografía (Gordon Willis, llamado “The Prince of Darkness”) y la música (Nino Rota & Carmine Coppola).

Lo peor: los muertos que se mueven (el hermano de Vito Andolini que mueve el brazo y la prostituta que respira), aunque tampoco importa demasiado.

The worst: the dead that seem alive (Vito’s brother moves his arm and the dead prostitute is breathing), although it does not bother too much.
