  1. Francesca Di Donna's rating of the film Il postino

    One of the most touching goodbye from an actor to life and cinema itself.

  2. NUGA's rating of the film Il postino

    I always found neo-realism strikingly (magical) poetic, contrasted by it's dark reality. This movie, although, is not poetic as much as it is about poetry and the dichotomy between the naturalistic calmness of our simple humanity and the pursuit of inspire and patriotism.

  3. Vourkos's rating of the film Il postino

    viewing again this film 20+ years later, i can see that technically is not good, but dramatically is still excellent..

  5. anadyomene's rating of the film Il postino

    Let me embrace Massimo Troisi and thank him for this beauteous, sensuous, cerulean blue melancholy. I want to be in love like this painfully taciturn postman, and I wouldn't mind having the same tragic ending. Anyone who have "Burning Patience" by Antonio Skarmeta, please lend it to me.

  6. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Il postino

    (...) Fast könnte man sich vorstellen, Mario wäre der Poet und Neurda der Postmann. Immerhin beweist Mario letztlich, wie Poesie auf Frauen wirkt, indem er seine Traumfrau Beatrice (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) neugierig macht. Der Film beruht auf einem Roman von Antonio Skarmeta. Ob der aber auf realen Fakten aufbaut, will ich im Grunde gar nicht wissen.
