This is a fantasic film about the life of lost soldiers on a 'deserted' island. It focuses on human nature (or that of Italian men!) when all you have is hopes and dreams to keep you going. It also gives an insight into national stereotypes and politics during the war, without being heavy-going. Its a funny story about love, war, and friendship all rolled into one. Even if your not interested in the history bit, its still really good. (Also, I think that if you examine it really carefully, you can find some paralells with the book 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin')
