Netflix invited me to watch The Godfather II.

There are some films that are part of our lives. They stay in our memories and seem to belong and intertwine with us. Such is the case for me of Gone with the Wind. My mother took me to watch it for the first time when I was a little girl. Since then, I have seen it several times and I have taken my daughters and my granddaughter to watch it. And the same thing happens to the trilogy of The godfather. Usually, bestsellers stay for just a short time in our memories. Not this one. The book by Mario Puzo was incredible and there are some sentences that are now part of our language. Who has forgotten that sentence about making "an offer he can´t refuse"? This second part of the trilogy has an impecable Al Pacino. The rest of the actor are pale with him around, but they are not needed. The idea is to show a man with a personality bigger than life. Watch it! I´m on an intermission.

My sister was named after Scarlett O'hara of Gone with the Wind. My father was such a reader he had tons of books at home. Back when I was young and when he still wasn't that busy, after lunch he would usually get a book and read. And he wasn't only a reader, he was a movie fanatic too. So we would always watch a movie not in the theatre but in our tv screen with betamax back then. He introduced us to a lot of great American movies including Gone with the Wind and The God Father. I was too young then, and watching old films like Gone with the Wind in the 80s were just so different but I enjoyed it even though I understood very little. I was just a very young child then. But when I was in high school, my sister, who was named after that main character, watched the movie again and I understood it pretty well to appreciate it. Not only that, I've also read the book when I was in high school. And it was my dad's old book. It was a thick one.
