Synopsis

It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Cephallonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscien-tious but far from fanatical soldier, whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilised, humorous - and a consumate musician. When the local doctor's daughter's letters to her fiance go unanswered, the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable. But can this fragile love survive as a war of bestial savagery gets closer and the lines are drawn between invader and defender?

Customer Reviews

This is an outstanding story about war. Subtle. nothing black and white even if there are some pretty gruesome episodes. But neither party is presented has being the devil incarnate. There is also the love story between Pelagia and the Captain which continues after a 40 years interruption.Very human all along. Beautifully written in a rather dispassionate way
