Captain Corelli’s Mandolin
When a Greek fisherman leaves to fight with the Greek army during WWII, his fiancee falls in love with the local Italian commander. The film is based on a novel about an Italian soldier’s experiences during the Italian occupation of the Greek island of Cephalonia (Kefalonia), but Hollywood made it into a pure love story by removing much of the ”unpleasant” stuff.
Captain Corelli's Mandolin review by Soap2day
Captain Corelli's Mandolin - one of the most watched movies of the 2001.
For all the 131 minutes this movie is running, there is not a minute that will be wasted watching it.
When it comes to movies of the genre Drama, History, Music, Romance, this film immediately comes to mind.
This movie was made in 2001 and is watched in one breath.
Jody Blose, John Madden`s ability to set the accents in all the right places made the movie a real piece of work.
In addition to the camera work, it is worth noting the magnificent game of Aspasia Kralli, Christian Bale, David Morrissey, Dimitris Kaberidis, Gerasimos Skiadaressis, Irene Papas, John Hurt, Mihalis Giannatos, Nicolas Cage, Nuccio Siano, Patrick Malahide, Penélope Cruz, Pietro Sarubbi, Salvatore Lazzaro, Viki Maragaki.
