When exiled Cuban poet Pablo Neruda (Philippe Noiret) arrives on a tiny Italian isle, there’s so much new mail that Mario (Massimo Troisi), an unemployed, uneducated layabout, is hired as a postman. His job is simply to deliver Neruda’s daily mail. Mario soon becomes a student of the poet, learning the art of poetry to woo a local barmaid (Maria Grazia Cucinotta). In Italian and Spanish with subtitles. Oscar nominee for Best Picture and Oscar winner for Best Musical Score. (1995, PG, 116 mins)

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

“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.” – Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
