Suggested correction: That is not Garcia walking behind Pacino, that is a body guard. Garcia (Vincent) is wearing a black tux with white ruffled shirt. The bodyguard is wearing what looks like a black suit with a black shirt. The actor looks somewhat like Garcia, but is not him. This was not a mistake in the movie.

Continuity mistake: When Mary is hit at the end of the film and Kay screams, Vincent looks up and shouts "No!" and the scene cuts back to Michael holding Mary, as we hear Vincent continue his line ("Mary!") but then Vincent appears behind Michael and Mary, walking slowly up the steps, hair slicked back, gun in hand, mouth closed as his line is still being delivered, with no pause ("Mary! No!"). The next cut shows Vincent back at the bottom of the stairs near the priests, with his hair mussed up. And the poor editing continues - when the camera pans out following Michael's scream, we can see Vincent slowly walking up the steps behind Michael, and this is the same shot as before from a different angle.

Suggested correction: That is not Andy Garcia walking behind Pacino, that is a bodyguard. Garcia is wearing a tux with a white ruffled shirt. The bodyguard (that looks similar to Garcia) is wearing a black suit top with black shirt. This was *NOT* a mistake in the movie.

Continuity mistake: When Michael enters the room where he sees Kay looking nostalgically at the old photos, he is carrying and offers to her pieces of cake from a cake that hasn't even been cut yet. They are the exact size and dimension of the cake slices that will betaken from the celebration cake which is not cut until several scenes later.

Question: What is the plot of this movie exactly? Sorry, but once they discussed Immobliare, I was confused as to what the movie was about.

Answer: Michael is trying to divest the family of all ties to organized crime. Internazionale Immobiliare is an international real estate concern and owning it would legitimize the family. Michael is attempting to buy out the Vatican's 25% of the shares in it to gain controlling interest, but the other families either want in on the deal or want to steal it out from under him, forcing him back into his old criminal ways.
