"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 is a newly appointed mailman who is madly in love with the most beautiful woman in town, Beatrice Russo. 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 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"--Container.

Touching and funny - one of my favorite movies of all time.
About poetry and life
Yes it's a foreign movie and it is subtitled, but never seems
self consciously arty or pretentious.

A charming film, and intuitive to the spirit of Neruda.
