  • I wish I'd brought a pair of peas to the screening. Then I could have taken in the glorious scenery without the dumb dialogue, which is delivered in a jangle of accents that makes a mockery of ethnicity. show more

  • A handsomely staged and craftily constructed tearjerker. show more

  • Although it's in the same genre as "The English Patient," it's a vastly better movie --more surprising and original, more rigorous and sympathetic. This film is oddly shaped. It is also heartbreaking and exhilarating. show more

    I saw this movie when it fiest hit the theaters in 2001, I loved it! I have always like Nicolas Cage anyway but, this movie was beautiful. The back drop scenery was breath taking...

    In this war-time drama, we find two hearts that share an amazing friendship.Capt.Antonio Corelli (Cage), is sent to Greece with his troop during World War.He meets Pelagia (Cruz) and falls head over heels for her.While staying with the family, he grows more sensitive and distant from his superiors.He has a change of heart, against leaving her family in ruin.This movie shows not only Cage,the action star, but a more sincere side to Mr. Cage, the romantic lover.Bravo and cheers to the cast, for this sweet love story!
