Much, much, MUCH better than "Il Postino"
31 August 2000 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

During all the publicity that the "Postino" received, I was angry that nobody mentioned the original; not the director, not the press - one wonders why....afraid of the comparison?? Because that's what this movie is: original, very poetic, wonderful sense of humor, true to the book, great acting. It is highly recommended that you see this in spanish (subtitled if need be) - but please try and see it!
