Captain Corelli's Mandolin

Forbidden love, cultures at odds, dying traditions, betrayal, treachery, and a host of other numerous themes that haunt my soul make this film one of the most moving films I've seen.

Penelope Cruz's strong performance, a haunting score, an engaging slow pace, and the lovely cinematography by John Toll (who earlier won Oscars for his cinematographic work on Braveheart and Legends of the Fall) make this film one of the most enduring movies of 2001.
