The Good Postman Regie Tonislav Hristov
Such an impassioned, paralysed feeling is dramatised to great effect in The Good Postman, a Bulgarian documentary about Ivan, a postman who decides to run for mayor of his small village on the platform of accepting refugees. The Good Postman is beautifully shot, so much that, at times, it feels as though you are watching a fiction film, our lonely protagonist’s craggy face perfectly lit and set against a peeling, painted wall.

While his neighbors are both opposed to and supportive of his brainstorm, the film is anything but predictable. Rather than conveying a heavy-handed political message, Hristov provides us with a thorough portrait of a rural community, including its often laugh-out-loud absurdities. It’s a funny, feel-good film about the refugee crisis — a rare gem indeed.

Despite the absence of externalized drama, The Good Postman is thoroughly engrossing, and abundantly expressive, thanks to Orlin Ruevski’s elegantly composed wide-screen cinematography, Petar Dundakov’s score, and the beautiful face of the good postman himself.
