Il Postino is a 1994 Italian film directed by Michael Radford. The film tells a fictional story in which the real life Chilean poet Pablo Neruda forms a relationship with a simple postman who learns to love poetry. It stars Philippe Noiret, Massimo Troisi, and Maria Grazia Cucinotta. The album, later released, won the Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score.
