The Godfather trilogy (consisting of three feature films) is a crime-drama film series about a fictional Corleone Mafia family. All three films are directed by Francis Ford Coppola in cooperation with the author of the same name novel Mario Puzo.
The films have set new standards in American cinema, especially the first one, which is seen by many as the best film of all time. With the great critical and commercial successes, The Godfather paved the way for two other films that together have earned more than $ 550 million worldwide.
The series has also won 9 Academy Awards out of 29 nominations, including Best Actor (Marlon Brando) and Best Supporting Actor (Robert De Niro).
