Critic Reviews for Il Postino: The Postman (Il Postino)
The Postman (Il Postino) is slight, but it's tough to imagine anyone not liking it.
Troisi... has fine comic timing throughout, along with a touch of mulishness which keeps a lot (but not all) of the hovering sentimentality at bay.
A mildly charming fable, about an Italian postman who eins the heart of a local girl through the heartfelt poetry of a legendary port, the film became cause celebre when star Massimo Troisi died one day after the shoot was over.
Audience Reviews for Il Postino: The Postman (Il Postino)
It's almost too sweet, and not subtle at all... but it's a perfect crowd pleaser, romantic and earnest, a film from a forgotten era of film-making. I kind of loved it.
The Postman is a beautiful fictional work that reveres words, metaphors, and inspiration. A solemn praise to poetry, grace, and simplicity. Treasured.
I watched this in my Spanish class once for some reason, it's in Italian, though. We also saw the play the film was based on. It's a good romance story, funny, sad, happy, everything a romance should be, I guess. Overall, this is a good movie, but the play is better.
