Il Postino ( The Postman )
Massimo Triosi, Michael Radford 
Italy | PG | 114 mins | Romance | Italian ( English Subtitles )

Re-released and remastered, this is one of the most romantic films ever made. Set in a beautiful looking 1950s' Italy, a moving tale of poetry, love and friendship, made ever more poignant by the knowledge that the actor Massimo Trisosi, playing the poorly-educated Postman, died the day after filming ended.
