"Beautiful romantic & touching movie"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen & I've watched it many times. It's just so gentle, romantic, thought provoking & funny. For me it shows the human spirit at it's best: love, hope, sadness, beauty,humour & creativity


Il Postino: The Postman is a 1994 Italian drama film directed by Michael Radford, packaged on DVD.

A true cinema delight for romantics and lovers of enriched drama, Il Postino – The Postman is a gentle Italian tale about the power of words, the strength of love and the ability to overcome life's many emotional challenges. Mario (Oscar® nominee Massimo Troisi in his final screen performance) is a newly appointed mailman who is madly in love with the most beautiful woman in town, Beatrice Russo (Maria Grazia Cucinotta). Bumbling, interminably shy and far too nervous to tell her how he feels, Mario becomes inspired when a world-famous Chilean poet visits the small island community. Pablo Neruda (Award winning actor Philippe Noiret, Cinema Paradiso) is a revelation to the otherwise introverted and soft spoken Mario and with his expert help Mario not only finds the right words to woo Beatrice but has a fighting chance to win her over.


Il Postino: The Postman Movie Reviews

“An unforgettable, poetic romance from Italy whose disarming humor, blushing encounters and bittersweet flavors are certain to set off a groundswell of smiles, tears and regret.” San Francisco Chronicle

“A charming piece of cinema that takes several comfortable formulas and expands upon them in ingenious and emotionally-satisfying ways.” ReelViews

“Made under unique and wrenching circumstances, it gained poignancy and a kind of purity from its troubles, and an already affecting film ended up suffused with emotion.” Los Angeles Times

“An enchanting Italian serio-comedy about the most unlikely of cinematic subjects-the origins, structure and reach of poetry.” Washington Post
