Salina in the 1950s. A postman drag himself up the mountain with his last strength. He has the mail for Pablo Neruda, who is waiting for the end of his exile and for the Nobel Prize on the Mediterranean island. In Neruda the postman finds a friend who opens his eyes to the nature, love and poetry. The poet also sensitizes his new friend to politics, the fight for a good cause. IL POSTINO can be compared to the odes of Neruda: At first glance, it is a love letter to life in all its facets, at second glance, a quiet question about the things that really matter.
