Sidenote that this film was produced by none other than Silvio Berlusconi!
Mediterraneo is a entertaining, and some times funny film. With a bunch of colorful characters, which we get to know through the course of the movie and their relation ship with the islanders. One of them even falls in love with a prostitute. If you in the mood for a war film, I would have to disappoint and tell you that except for some distant canon firing at the sea, and a dead mule there's pretty little violence. This movie has the perfect tone, the right Mediterranean tropical tone, or like Homer's Odyssey, in the way we follow the characters though an epic adventure. And it's overall a really enjoyable realizing film, just like a trip to Cyprus. Thumbs up.
