While the main action continues into the 1950s, Coppola rewinds his crime saga to its modest beginnings at the turn of the century, with Sicilian emigré Robert De Niro as the young Vito Corleone, founding his criminal empire like any other entrepreneur. Establishing immigrant striving as the proto-gangster narrative kernel, Coppola paved the way for films by Sergio Leone and beyond.
