  • Handsomely weathered John Hurt, as Pelagia's father, gives a performance of such unhackneyed dignity that it provides a moral compass for the action and helps to keep the ricocheting emotional content of the film in balance. show more

  • The result is far from perfect, but to its many merits, add timing. You never get a movie with this kind of story in mid-August. show more

  • 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

    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!
