On a remote Greek island, an Italian artillery garrison is established to maintain order. One Italian officer, Captain Corelli, adopts an attitude of mutual co-existence with the Greeks and engages in such activities as music festivals and courting the daughter of a local doctor. In 1943, however, after Italy surrenders to the Allies and changes sides in the war, Captain Corelli must defend the Greek island against a German invasion.
Plot: 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.

Please read the book instead.
Ok, it’s a given that you cannot make a good movie from a good book. (Unless you make it a trilogy 🙂 But comparing the book Corelli’s Mandolin to this movie it’s clear how much has to be cut to fit a screenplay. The book is very funny in places, romantic (of course), dramatic. What’s left of it in the film is inexplicable romance — as other reviewers have remarked, it’s unclear why she falls in love with the italian while her betrothed is still around, and I have no idea why this was changed from the book — and some gratuitous gunning and bombing scenes, more than in the book which derives its power from not hammering on the obvious points. Whole characters are cut: Carlo has maybe 10 seconds screen time, while in the book he has a whole story line that runs several chapters.
I Loved It
Oh my goodness, where do I begin? Penelope Cruz was absolutely fabulous in this movie. Nick Cage was even more fabulous. If you are a romantic like myself, you may consider this your all-time favorite romance movie. It starts off kinda of dry but don’t let that fool you. Once it starts building, you will stay glued to the screen. It has several twist and turns and the war details are poignant. The movie’s previews may be a little misleading in leading you to believe the movie is mainly coverage on WW2; however, this is more a love story and an exhilarating one at that. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite movies. This movie made me fall in love with the mandolin; what a beautiful, quixotic instrument. Anyone who gives this movie a low rating is definitely not a romantic.
