Synopsis:
With memorable performances from Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz, acclaimed director John Madden creates breathtaking imagery set amid the Italian occupation of Greece during World War II. When Captain Antonio Corelli (Nicolas Cage) and his Italian army company arrive on the unspoiled Greek island of Cephallonia strong-willed young Pelagia (Penelope Cruz) and the other villagers meet these uninvited guests with resentment. But as the Italians’ charm and passion for life win their acceptance, Pelagia and Corelli begin to develop a bond that transcends the divisions of nationality and circumstances.
Then, as the harsh reality of war ultimately crashes upon the idyllic shores of Cephallonia, Capt. Corelli must face the possibility of leaving the island and losing the woman he has come to love.

hope in the middle of despair - Captain Corelli's Mandolin review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
02/03/2007

It's heartbreaking to see what war can do to people. But despite all the tragedy, this film has a positive outlook on life and shows that there is hope for the future in the midst of destruction.

The film does encourage some stereotypes about Italians, Greeks and Germans, but it is after all a piece based on historical events, allthough fictional.

Thought-provoking entertainment.
