Today, the world celebrates the birth of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, Nobel Prize in literature and social activist. So, our recommendation for this weekend is the film Il Postino. This movie, directed by Michael Radford and based on the novel Burning Patience by Chilean writer Antonio Skarmeta, tells the story of Mario Ruoppolo, a man living in an Italian fishing island where life is peaceful and the landscape tranquil. Mario can not engage in fishing because he feels dizzy, so he gets a job as a postman, with the particularity that only deliver mail to a client: Pablo Neruda. From these brief encounters, borns a close friendship between the two men, which will grow as they tell their confidences, so they slowly discover the true meaning of poetry.
