Synopsis:
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.

I was enchanted by this film from the very start. The acting, filming in this gloriously understated film was stunning. I've not been so moved by a film for years.

Moved me to read Neruda again. Beautifully portrayed a wonderful and simple love story told with simplicity and having the weight of passion and sensuality all underlaying it.
