download Study Guide The Godfather 2 shuttles back and forth constantly from past and present, contrasting the life of Vito Corleone in the early twentieth century, from his humble beginnings through his ascent into power, with that of his son Michael Corleone in the second half of the twentieth century, whose influence is declining. The film begins with a flashback to , where the grisly massacre of the Andolini family in Corleone, Sicily is well underway. A nine-year-old Vito Andolini is spared from the bloody vendetta against his family enacted by local Mafia head Don Ciccio by the quick actions of loyal Andolini clan retainers. Amidst this joyous occasion, he is holding a series of meetings as the head of his organized crime family. There is dissidence within his organization; his caporegime, Frank Pentangeli, is disappointed. He feels that Michael has abandoned him, failing to defend his territory from incursions of the Rosato brothers, who work for Hyman Roth , who in turn works for Michael.
Once more the scene shifts to a flashback, again focusing on Vito Corleone, this time a little older with two more children in tow, Fredo and Michael. Later on, during the neighborhood festival, Vito follows him to his apartment where he shoots him using the sound of fireworks to conceal the crime. The film jumps forward again to a courtroom scene where a Senate committee is investigating the Corleone family for alleged involvements in organized crime.
Pentangeli believes that Michael has betrayed him, because of the unsuccessful assassination attempt on his life.
He agrees to testify against Michael in exchange for being placed under the witness protection program. Meanwhile, Fredo returns to Nevada, seeking a private audience with Michael in an attempt to clear his name and spare his life.
He explains that he was indignant at being bypassed by Michael for leadership of the clan, and thus agreed to assist Roth in organizing a coup—unaware that this involved a plot to kill his brother.
After Fredo confesses, Michael promptly disowns him. Trying to protect himself from the investigation, Michael resorts to another method to shake Pentangeli, who is now virtually untouchable because of the federal witness protection program. Pentangeli denies all his previous statements and a riot breaks out in the courtroom. Just when it seems that matters are turning out favorably for Michael, Kay decides to reveal the truth regarding the supposed miscarriage.
A now-livid Michael Corleone then banishes Kay and takes sole custody of their children. The scene then cuts back to another flashback: here we see Vito Corleone visiting Sicily, the first time since his harried departure many, many years ago.
He visits the compound of Don Ciccio with his business partner Tommasino under the pretense of paying their respects to him to seek his blessing to set up their olive oil import-export business. Vito is there however to exact vengeance on the old Don for wiping out his clan.
A nurse hears some of her colleagues whispering for her to join them. She hushes them. Then walks out into the hall. Come on, just for a minute. He walks over to the other door and closes it, also.
Then he walks over toward ROTH's bed. Everyone hugs and kisses.
Don't make a big thing about it. He walks toward the stage. And I shall leave the city immediately. According to Speicher , Coppola layers the scene with a Bach piece, which climaxes as the priest asks Michael whether he renounces Satan. Michael answers in the affirmative and then the scene cuts to the killings and then back again to the baptism.
It is clear that Michael as the new Godfather has instigated the hit on the Barzini family. His motivations are his own survival retaining power and influence over the Five Families.
He has his hit men and just needs to give them orders to carry out his will as family head. The rationale is that the Barzini family is going to assassinate Michael unless the hits are carried out. He was warned about this as well by his father shortly before his death.
There are issues that remain with people outside the group.
