FFF continues Italian movie season with the 1994 classic Il Postino (The Postman). An Italian movie by British director Michael Radford.
In this romance a simple Italian postman learns to love poetry while delivering mail to a famous poet; he uses this to woo local beauty Beatrice.
The beauty of the film is in its quietness. The guiding spirit behind the production seems to have been Troisi, an Italian director and actor who co-wrote the screenplay and postponed heart surgery in order to act in the title role. He died the day after the movie was finished.
