Francis Ford Coppola's epic tale of a 1940s New York Mafia comes to the Luxembourg's Cinémathèque in January as part of a retrospective of the director's greatest works.

The first film in “The Godfather” trilogy, released in 1972 and starring Marlon Brando, was inspired by the novel of the same name by Mario Puzo.

It follows “Don” Vito (played by Brando), the head of the Corleone Mafia family who is known to associates as the “Godfather”.

When the patriarch turns down a request for protection of a drug dealer, because he morally opposes the sale of drugs, he is nearly killed by the dealer's cronies.

It then falls to Vito's reluctant son, Michael, to redress the balance, a mission which ends up tearing his family apart.

“The Godfather” will be screened in English at the Cinémathèque in Luxembourg Ville on January 17 at 7pm.

Other Francis Ford Coppola films being screened as part of the retrospective will be:

  • “Dementia 13”, January 19, at 6:30pm
  • “You're a big boy now”, January 9 & 24 at 6:30pm
  • “Finian's Rainbow”, January 10 at 8:30pm and 26 at 6:30pm
  • “The Rain People”, January 23, at 8:30pm
