Overview

A Vintage original movie tie-in edition featuring cover art and movie still photos.

A brilliant film adaptation of Louis de Bernières' bestselling novel, shot on location in Corfu and Cephallonia, is releasing in spring 2001, directed by Shakespeare in Love's John Madden, co-produced by UIP, Working Title (Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Le Studio Canal+. The film is being distributed worldwide by Buena Vista International.

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 ostracized by the locals, but as a conscientious but far from fanatical soldier whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilized, humorous – and a consummate musician.

When the local doctor's daughter's letter to her fiancé – and members of the underground – 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?
