I haven't watched these films in many years. Is there a reason the Part 1 variant would be in English and the part 2 variant in Italian?

Part 2 focuses on Vito's life growing up in Italy. I suspect that is why.

Makes sense. Thanks

I've always loved the way Laurent does clouds. The shading makes it look so realistic...and fluffy.
Bound by the variable, Hedron.

Lovely piece. Subtle little reflection, to me, of the penultimate scene. Love the isolation, you can feel it. Can't wait to swing and miss for this. :lol:

I love this scene. The poster alone gives me chills... I can almost hear the music in the background

I'm a little let down. Too much white space, if you can call it that. Im sure there is detailed linework in there but I would like to have a seen a different setting.

Godfather Part II is the best of the bunch IMO. This poster is awesome sauce and I don't really dig the movie prints. Can't remember if this actual scene is in the movie but regardless of that it captures just how the young Godfather was feeling at this point in time. Very well done. Great poster.



On a side note the "Italian" variant....wtf. At least do that for all 3 of them and not just the 2nd and 3rd(?).

Part II is my favorite film of the 3. I'll have to let this print grow on me. I still like the 1st one more. Not of big fan of the title in Italian on the variant. And no big deal but I wish the edition sizes stayed the same as the first one.
