Captain Corelli’s Mandolin Movie Review: The film is based on the novel Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières and pays homage to the thousands of Italian soldiers executed at the Massacre of the Acqui Division by German forces in Cephalonia in September 1943, and to the people of Cephalonia who were killed in the post-war earthquake.

If you haven’t read the book, then you will probably enjoy this film. The cinematography was beautiful. 

If you’ve read the book then you are going to find quite a few faults with this film. Nicholas Cage comes across a bit wooden and the script was clunky in places.
