Captain Corelli's Mandolin


USA 2001, 129 minutes
Dir. John Madden
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama / Romance, War

Topics: Period 1940s.


Aroview: A melodiously played costume-drama, that unfolds on the Greek island of Cephalonia during WWII.

Occupation by Italian and later German forces provides an uneasy backdrop to various village dramas, chiefly a burgeoning romance between Penelope Cruz and Christian Bale. Adapted from the novel by Louis de Bernieres (with the war sequences abbreviated), this also features a slightly miscast Nicolas Cage.
