Washington Post
An enchanting Italian serio-comedy about the most unlikely of cinematic subjects-the origins, structure and reach of poetry. Full Review
Derek Elley
Variety
Pic's potentially inspiring story too often remains grounded by a problematic script and unshapely direction. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The screenplay (which is credited to a small crowd: director Michael Radford, Anna Pavignano, Furio Scarpelli, Giacomo Scarpelli and Troisi) is refreshingly witty and restrained. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
A rueful, warmly affecting film featuring a wonderful performance by Mr. Troisi, The Postman would be attention-getting even without the sadness that overshadows it. [14 June 1995, p. C15] Full Review
