Synopsis: Pablo Neruda, the famous Chilean poet, is exiled to a small island for political reasons. On the island, the unemployed son of a poor fisherman is hired as an extra postman due to the huge increase in mail that this causes. Il Postino is to hand-deliver the celebrity's mail to him. Though poorly educated, the postman learns to love poetry and eventually befriends Neruda. Struggling to grow and express himself more fully, he suddenly falls in love and needs Neruda's help and guidance more than ever.
Sinossi: Il pescatore Mario decide di lavorare come postino da quando il famoso scrittore cileno Pablo Neruda si trasferisce nella sua isoletta, in Italia, per motivi politici. Lo scrittore ha bisogno di qualcuno che gli spedisca le grandi quantità di lettere che lui manda ai suoi ammiratori, e Mario non sopporta più il lavoro di pescatore. I due diverranno grandi amici e lo scrittore aiuterà Mario a conquistare la bella Beatrice...

    Ciao Jennifer! Yes, you can pay at the door or in advance. It's your choice. Seats are only guaranteed for people who pay in advance but we've done four film events and we've been able to seat everyone for each film. It should be fine either way.

    Can I pay there?
