The Offer

Cinema

„The Offer“ ran 2022 in the festival cinema program.

An offer you can't refuse: Michael Tolkin author of "The Player" has half of Hollywood lining up to pay his tribute to the making of an early 1970s classic.

Whoever has even once taken a look at books like "Hollywood Babylon" or the ingenious New Hollywood consideration "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" knows that hardly any film is as criminal and depraved as the film mecca Hollywood itself. Writer Michael Tolkin already made this fact his own for the screenplay of Robert Altman's "The Player"; for "The Offer" he now goes even further back in time and to a classic in whose making a few legendary figures - and the Mafia - were involved: To Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather." "The Offer" follows its producer Albert S. Ruddy (Miles Teller), studio executive Robert Evans (Matthew Goode) and the young Coppola (Dan Fogler) on their way to the big screen classic, which among others still actors such as Giovanni Ribisi, Juno Temple and Colin Hanks may cross. For cineastes in general and fans of the Mafia classic in particular, this means a cornucopia of anecdotes and film historical figures. Great cinema, as if made for the golden age of series.
