Aroview: The biggest international foreign language hit since LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE stars the late Massimo Troisi as a simple postie who learns the value of poetry in order to woo the girl of his dreams. A hopelessly romantic ode to beauty with the multi-lingual Phillipe Noiret superb as his eccentric mentor. Nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.

5 stars (Exceptional) Great Italian movie set on Capri in 1952. Shy Troisi brings mail to the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda exiled in a mansion far above the fishing village. They become friends, and Troisi gains confidence. Great acting, lovely characters; recommended.~Sandy
4 stars (Very Good) It has used one of the most beautiful filming locations and the photography does it justice. It falters a bit toward the end but for the most part, the screenplay avoids being over sentimental which is really some achievement.~tubbs
