The Godfather pt II by Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Ford Coppola took cinema by storm in 1974 being nominated for 5 Oscars over the course of two films - The Conversation and the Best Picture winner (this one) The Godfather pt. II. This film continues the saga of Michael Corleone but it also goes back to the turn of the century and tells us the story of the young Vito Corleone, played stunningly by a very young Robert De Niro who also played in Martin Scorsese's break out film Mean Streets in 1974, but for his role as Vito Corleone he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor (his first of two Oscars he won for impersonating the legandary Marlon Brando).
