4.0 out of 5 stars breathtaking scenery, inspired acting, 6 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Captain Corelli's Mandolin [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
The film was but a short review of the book,after visiting the Island and reading the book I was pleased with the eventual outcome. The acting especially John Hurt was so real of the greek man,Penelope Cruz was magnificent in the way she portrayed Pelagia, in love, in sadness, in doubt of the way she was meant to behave in the time of invasion. Nicolas Cage was indeed the man for the part, Captain Corelli was played with that touch of Italian humour and nostalgic love appeal needed by the woman of the times. The ending was short in reflection to the book but the film version gave the scenic spleandour no book could ever give. I recommend this film to those who like good film scores, wonderful scenery and a cast which truly played out the characters heartaches and longings in times of oppression, but these are my personal views, I love the Island of Cephallonia, I loved the book, the film completed the dream.
