Story


In 1951, Don Carini (Harvey Keitel), the mafia's most powerful godfather, gathers his followers to announce the heir to the family. Each expects to be crowned the next Don, but they hear a shocking story from Don Carini. During his travels in Asia, he fell in love with an Asian woman who bore him a son. His now adult son Young-gu (Shim Hyung-rae) is anointed the next boss. Bonfante (Michael Rispoli), the betrayer in the outfit, wants Young-gu and the aging Don out, and with his minions, relentlessly tries to sabotage Young-gu's training and take out the boss. Will Young-gu overcome each obstacle and rise to become the next godfather and lead his new "family?"

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film doesn't quite reach the heights of brilliant badness as the last of Jerry Lewis' auteur features, but it perhaps occupies a floor in the same building..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
“..a weakly-developed script ensures that the large number of physical gags never build up to a satisfying climax..”
by Darcy Paquet [Screen Daily]
“..is rather too much of a mess to like a heckuva lot, including a running time that could easily stand a good 15 minutes of ruthless editing..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
