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.
Romance, gorgeous words, and the beauty of Italy.
One of the most romantic movies ever made.
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.
Works on so many different levels--as a tribute to the power and beauty of poetry; as a tale of brotherhood; and as a charmingly quirky romance.
A sweet and likable romantic fable until the finale strains for import.
Overrated, but powerful.
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.
a wonderful tale of a man with nothing but becomes something because of his interaction with the famed poet pablo neruda. many of the details about the life of neruda are true, but the story is very much fictional. its a bit bizarre really, a man marries an amazingly beautiful woman only to obsess over his bromance with a much older man, but there is something very beautiful about the story. the cinematography and dialogue were brilliant throughout, and the film was altogether touching and thoughtful.
