The following things affect his life:
1. Joining the army.
2. The distinguished father was shot on the street like a falling dog.
3. The seriously injured father was again attempted to secretly calculate in the hospital, but he broke the conspiracy but was beaten. (In the hospital, he was surprised for the first time to realize his courage and calmness. This was his first awakening and was doomed to him. To become the new godfather).
4. The enemy again used secret calculations and bought the younger sister Connie's husband Carlo, causing his elder brother Sonny to be shot into a sieve at the high-speed station.
5. I noticed that several big families have not given up killing their fathers. Under the pretense of negotiating, they shot police detectives and Sorozo in one fell swoop, killing Sicily.
6. In Sicily, he married a local girl, his car was bombed, and his newlywed was killed in front of him.
7. After returning to the United States and marrying Kay, their children were afraid of Michael, and Kay also left him under Michael's step change;
8. During the family's final counterattack, the godfather's left-handed right-handed Tessio contacted other families in an attempt to murder Michael, and Michael was found to have killed Tessio in advance;
Event 1 Michael joined the army.
On the one hand, he proved that Michael has been assimilated by American culture, and he has invested in a war that has nothing to do with his hometown. The family that people believe in is the first one, and it has a fierce conflict with the changes of Michael later; on the other hand, participating in this war also affects his perspective on things. In the war, only who moves fast, has great power, and is single Absolutely strong. Human life is like a mustard in war, and the dignity and existence of life seem meaningless. Before this war, Michael's life was smooth, when his youth participated in the war in the formation of values, so that he saw the ugly appearance of the original noble and gorgeous life too early, too real, and the glory of humanity under absolute power. The smallness laid the foundation for his cognition of the supremacy of power in the future.
In Incident 5, if he had not accidentally killed Sorozor and the detective, relying on the less alert and alert military division Tom and the second brother, he was unable to reverse the situation and protect his father so that the family could breathe. Sonny and his father are big brothers and loving fathers who love the brothers and sisters. However, these precious people in Michael's eyes, but under the calculation of betrayers and enemies, a dead face like a roadside wild dog, A life hanging. This made Michael even more convinced of the strong man theory. In life and death, only alive and dead, no good or bad, only strong enough, impeccable to fight everything.
Several things in 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 were caused by the betrayal of the family members and even their loved ones. In all respects, the Corioni family opponents are quite generous, and they are more conniving to their brother-in-law Carlo. However, they were more than satisfied with this, and fell into trouble when the family was in distress. The godfather can see through and even understand the mentality and practices of those betrayers. Michael can also see through but can't understand-his origin makes him disdain to understand the lower-level characters. In his eyes, those people are just a tool to voluntarily mark themselves. Betrayal makes the godfather helpless, killing the betrayal because they betray the godfather and family; betrayal makes Michael angry, killing the betrayal is because the tools that hurt oneself must die.
However, in incident 8, Tessio's betrayal was different from others. Xiao Hei can betray because of interests, but Tessio ’s betrayal is intolerable. When Tessio, Clemenza and the godfather first met, the godfather was just a young father who had just lost his job from the bakery. The three struggled step by step Today, all his life has been entangled. Tessio was the godfather's left arm and right arm, but he betrayed when Michael needed him most. He neither believed Michael nor the godfather's vision. He not only betrayed Michael but also offended the godfather. It is for this reason that when Michael speculates whether it is Tessio or the Clemenza mutiny family, it is only a little stubborn that I hope that not when I was a child, I always brought myself to play Clemenza for my own candy. -He was neither shocked nor angry at Tessio ’s mutiny, but indifferent and cold.
Maybe Michael also wants to be a beloved person like a godfather. But a series of repeated betrayals and blows again and again made Michael tired of coping with it. He could not take the risk of relying on the noble nature of his family; his responsibility was too great to feel the beauty of life and life. Forced himself to become a machine without omissions, set up a large wall to shield everything from outside, and only impeccable defense can reassure Michael and protect what he wants to protect.
However, this also caused him to lose the person he wanted to protect. Event 7 Michael ’s children were not close to him. Kay also left Michael. Michael grew up in a harmonious and happy family shaped by the godfather. This is his softest. The reason why he persisted in what he considered a "dirty" family business. It was heartbreaking betrayal and failure for him, and he unreservedly exposed his gap with his father. The godfather is the godfather because he is willing to condescend to listen to others' voices, to understand and to resonate, he sees through each other and then makes friends with each other, and Michael, sees through each other and manipulates each other.
Although Michael was ruthless and ruthless, he was very sad. His original intention was not to intervene in the family. He longed for honor rather than dirty business methods, but in order to be a family shield, he had to turn himself into a cold-blooded machine Don't stop spinning, don't dare to risk yourself to enjoy the good life. But at the same time, Michael is also a very sensitive person. He is always sober, which is his greatest misfortune.
There is a huge shadow of the godfather in the front, which requires him to follow and surpass, and later there are enemies who are eager to try. Even in the face of himself, he cannot be peaceful. Both the godfather and Michael lived for the family, but the godfather did not give up the happiness of the family and life, and Michael sacrificed all his sensibilities and feelings to protect the family peace.
