"Il Postino" Showing TONIGHT 2/12

The life of the fisherman Mario changes dramatically when the famous Chilean writer Pablo Neruda settles on his little Italian island. Living in exile becuase of his political beliefs, Neruda needs a postman to deliver the huge quantities of mail sent to him by his admirers and Mario takes the job since he hates fishing anyway. The two become friends and Neruda helps the shy and clumsy Mario to win the heart of Beatrice, the beautiful waitress at the village's inn, by showing him the beauty and power of poetry.

Come to the Free screening of this film in the UVU library room LI 120 on Thursday, Feb. 12th at 7pm.

  1. I really loved the first half of this film. I was uplifted, I laughed, I felt good. And then the second half came around and really upset me. I know that the second half added meaning and depth to the film, but I was not prepared to let go of the good feelings I had...

    I could tell from the audience that this was a fairly commonplace feeling. We all left the room feeling low and a bit confused, I think. I still liked the film, though.
