Il Postino us an unforgettable and heartwarming portrayal of a man's pursuit of love and acceptance. On a remote Mediterranean island, Mario Ruoppolo (Massimo Troisi), a shy and simple-minded fisherman's son, is hired to deliver mail to exiled "poet of love" Pablo Neruda (Philippe Noiret). As the two develop an improbable but tender friendship, Mario enlists Neruda's help to win the heart of a beautiful woman. During the sometimes hilarious courtship, Mario awakens the poet within himself and journeys on a life-changing course of romance and self discovery.
