the high art of making a light but melancholic movie
i'm glad there are a lot of other commentaries this frees me from telling too much about the story. it is about a postman who read the letters he's supposed to deliver and eventually even throws them away. suddenly he finds himself in the middle of a absurd and even a little dangerous story. but in my opinion just needs this story to talk about the relations between people. and what makes this movie so special is the fact that it actually not just shows pictures and sequences you've seen a hundred-times before.
it really has, i can't put it differently, respect for its personal.
this means that the persons keep their own personality for the whole absurd-tragic story of the movie.
