Beautiful Italian scenery, good performances by the cast (including Garcia, who is an even better actor than Pacino) and the usual assortment of offers you can't refuse, make this a tantalizing film to watch. The near-fatal flaw is the miscasting of Coppola's daughter Sofia in the pivotal role of Pacino's daughter. It's basically the old story of daddy's little girl getting what she wants. What she gave us was an awful melodramatic performance, that would make even her own father walk out of the theater and ask for his money back. Fortunately, she's not in very many scenes and it's basically Pacino and Garcia and the other cast members' show all the way.
