Francis Ford Coppola has made one of the most brutal and moving chronicles of American life ever designed within the limits of popular entertainment.
Sorry but I disagree. The film is brutal and moving as you said, but is nothing about American life. The Godfahter is about Italian life, in America, Argentina or anything else. And not even Italian life, but Sicilian life. It's a really different thing. Just imagine a Canadian and an Uruguayan and you will take the idea.
Great Italo-american film.
Sorry again, my English.

And what is the USA? It's composed of immigrants, like the Italians that are in "The Godfather." Their experience is uniquely American.
