Captain Corelli's Mandolin

Captain Corellis Mandolin
For me this movie took a while to get into! It took way too long to establish the characters. OK having said that I must say that I finished up thoroughly enjoying the experience!
The cast were quite credible I especially thought the John Hurt played his role beautifully, like the old stager he is :-)
Both Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz put in good performances. But the accents? Oh Boy?
My favorite scene was when the Italians marched on the Town Hall and demanded a surrender! You gotta watch it just for that scene.
Rating it a solid 8 out of 10, well worth a watch!
