Neruda’s poem read by Andy Garcia – Il Postino – The Postman

Mind minor mistakes in the videos.


The Italian film “Il Postino”, inspired by Antonio Skármeta’s 1985 novel Ardiente Paciencia (Ardent Patience, later known as El cartero de Neruda, or Neruda’s Postman), centres on the story of Pablo Neruda (Philippe Noiret) living in exile on Salina Island near Sicily during the 1950s. While there, he befriends the local postman and inspires in him a love of poetry. SOURCE
