Critic Reviews for Il Postino: The Postman (Il Postino)
This is a film with a heart and soul; a film keyed to the wonderful performance by actor and director Massimo Troisi.
The Postman (Il Postino) is slight, but it's tough to imagine anyone not liking it.
[The actors] make this good-hearted little film into a quiet meditation on fate, tact, and poetry.
Audience Reviews for Il Postino: The Postman (Il Postino)
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.
