    • 4 Pages

    The selected scene is from 37:51 to 39:53 in the film Godfather, Part 2; altogether, there are 15 shots in this duration. This scene is centered with the conversation between Michael Corleone and his step-brother Tom Hagen. This conversation is expected to be very “private”, only between Michael and Tom. Therefore, both lighting and camera shots have to create the sense of mystique. In order to do so, generally speaking, the lighting in this room is very dark. It has struck a responsive chord in the hearts of its audiences that secrets are always kept in the dark. As to the angles of shots, most of them are taken from 30 degrees either on Michael’s side or Tom’s side. In this way, the camera can keep both of them in the vision and give more…

    The Godfather Part 2 Essay

    • 1083 Words
    • 5 Pages

    it sounds, this is what I perceived the message to be in The Godfather: Part II by Francis Ford Coppola, but in the Cinema, the main protagonist Michael Corleone loses what matters the most to him, Family. You get to see him and his household collapse due to his obsession of the family business and you get to view this through great angles this flick has produced. The sequel overall satisfied me for it’s rich content and met up to the standards of the original movie. All in all, I enjoyed the…

As a mournful waltz with a melancholic vibe, the “Godfather Waltz” serves as a leitmotif for Don…

Even an eight-year-old me could identify the name of the film, even though I had not yet been able to enjoy the masterpiece. I vaguely knew what the film was about: violence, crime, something about family and business, and mafioso culture. However, apart from the most iconic scenes, I probably would not have been able to watch a clip and decisively state, “Oh, I know this movie—isn’t it like called The Godfather or…
