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.

A wonderful romance, excellently acted with a gentle humour running throughout. Yes, it has subtitles but it really is worth getting past them because this is a film to curl up on the sofa with a glass of wine. A gem!
