In the midst of trying to legitimize his business dealings in New York and Italy in 1979, aging Mafia don Michael Corleone seeks to avow for his sins while taking his nephew Vincent Mancini under his wing.
Kris Kelvin joins the space station orbiting the planet Solaris, only to find its two crew members plagued by "phantoms," creations of Solaris. Kelvin is soon confronted with his own phantom, taking the shape of his dead wife Hari.
I found this version extremely enjoyable. It ties the two movies together so smoothly and we also get to see what happens to characters whose fates were not determined in previous versions. For instance,one of Michael's body guards in Italy, who blew up his car, killing Appolonia.
When Michael goes back to the states, the Corleone's financial resources seek him out and find him and kill him.
There is also a great scene where the under taker, whom we saw in the original as just a humble, frustrated man who begs Don Corleone to kill the men who raped his daughter and got away with it, reveal himself to be just the opposite. He is a constant complainer and is horribly ungrateful. We never would have seen that in the uncut version.
To end, this edited for television version that combines parts 1 and 2 is such a joy to watch because of the superb story telling that weaves the two tales together masterfully.
