The Godfather (1972) (2334 words)
The 'honorable' crime "family," working outside the system due to exclusion by social prejudice, serves as a metaphor for the way business (the pursuit of the American dream) is conducted in capitalistic, profit-making corporations and governmental circles.
Family loyalty and blood ties are juxtaposed with brutal and vengeful blood-letting and the inevitable downfall of the family.
Corleone: We've known each other many years, but this is the first time you ever came to me for counsel or for help.
Blockbuster Online - 1001 Movies You Must See (0 words)
Vincent desperately wants in to the family (both literally and figuratively), and at the urging of his sister Connie (Talia Shire), Michael welcomes the young man and allows him to adopt the Corleone name.
It is the late 1940s in New York and Corleone is, in the parlance of organized crime, a "godfather" or "don," the head of a Mafia family.
Once Michael has been groomed as the new don, he leads the family to a new era of prosperity, then launches a campaign of murderous revenge against those who once tried to wipe out the Corleones, consolidating his family's power and completing his own moral downfall.
