In 1941, on a remote Greek island, an Italian artillery garrison is established to maintain order.

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.

Couldn't finish this film. Trite and boring. I'm also not a fan of Nicolas Cage and his silly accents. Penelope Cruz is beautiful, but there's only so much pouting and longing looks one film should have.

Pretty good film. Penelope Cruz was very good in her role. Good acting all around with many interesting subplots.
