It was one of the most notorious atrocities of World War II – and inspired Louis de Bernières’ bestseller Captain Corelli’s Mandolin: the massacre by the Nazis in 1943 of some 5,000 members of the Italian military on the idyllic Greek island of Cefalonia. Told with passion and anguish and drawn from some of the darkest pages of history, this true story of brutal repression and heroic resistance is brought to the screen in this superb, award-winning drama starring Luca Zingaretti and his real-life wife Luisa Ranieri (Letters to Juliet).
