Directed by Michael Radford, Il Postino is a charming film full of innocent and heartwarming moments. We see a relationship slowly grow between a postman and the famous poet, Pablo Neruda. Both of them are bonding over their love for poetry. This movie is reminiscent of Cinema Paradiso in which you see the dynamic of student and mentor. However, it has moments where it sticks out and becomes an original story. The most touching moments were how the student actually becomes the mentor and shows Neruda how there’s beauty in simplicity. Definitely, this movie was my favorite of this course.
