Dubai movie-goers can enjoy a remastered edition of the 1994 Italian drama Il Postino or The Postman, in the Cinema Akil theatre’s cosy, socially-distanced interiors.
Set in the 1950s, amid a truly breathtaking landscape, this poignant tale centres around Pablo Neruda, a famous Chilean poet, who is exiled to an island where he finds work as a postman. This good-hearted little film is like a quiet meditation on fate, tact, and poetry.
The screenplay is based on a novel - Burning Patience, by Antonio Skarmeta. The beauty of the film is in its quietness. The director, Michael Radford, is British, born in India.
Love, friendship, poetry and politics mingle in this story, which has won many awards including an Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score and multiple BAFTAs.
