Il Postino

Michael Radford's masterpiece, Il Postino (aka The Postman) has been lauded as 'one of the most romantic movies ever made' and garnered critical acclaim and multiple accolades on its release in 1994. Now this epoch-making film is set for delivery as a stunningly restored Dual Edition, including a Blu-ray and DVD version on 15 October 2018 thanks to CultFilms, who is delighted to announce a one off screening at the Regent Street Cinema with an exclusive Q & A with Michael Radford on 30 August 2018. www.regentstreetcinema.com/programme/il-postino

Scripted by Furio Scarpelli together with Anna Pavignano, Massimo Troisi and Michael Radford the story follows Pablo Neruda's exile to a tiny island off Italy where, being a high profile figure, he receives such huge quantities of mail that the local post office must hire an extra postman: Il Postino.

Though shy and poorly educated, our postman (Troisi -Nothing Left to Do But Cry, I'm Starting From Three), is so intrigued by Neruda (Philippe Noiret - Cinema Paradiso, La Grande Bouffe, Coup de Torchon, Life and Nothing But), he devises ploys to engage the attention of the great man. Neruda is charmed by the fresh simplicity of the postman's enthusiasm and the unlikely duo become friends; to the extent that the Poet of Love - as Neruda was known - ends up helping his young friend to follow his dreams and express his love to win the heart of the island beauty Beatrice (Maria Grazia Cucinotta - The World is Not Enough, The Rite).
