Il postino / The Postman (1994) DVD9
On a small and poor Italian island in 1953, a famous Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda (Philippe Noiret), comes to live in exile. Since he is an avowed Communist, he is shunned by his government, but since he is known as "the Poet of Love", he is adored by all the women of the world.
Mario Ruppolo gets the job of delivering the mail to Neruda. Being a mailman to a single person is more work that it might seem since woman all over the planet write to the Poet of Love.
Pablo becomes a mentor to Mario who decides he wants to be a poet too. Mario wants to know all of his secrets since he is in awe of him. Their association becomes more then just a teacher to student relationship. They become life-long friends, who have an understanding trust for one another, and a belief that both will succeed one day in life.
