WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

San Francisco Examiner by

Troisi, who was a star in Italy, hasn't been seen widely in the United States, and from this film it is difficult to be certain how he achieved his fame.

Variety by Derek Elley

Pic's potentially inspiring story too often remains grounded by a problematic script and unshapely direction.
80

Washington Post by Desson Thomson

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.

The New York Times by Elvis Mitchell

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]

ReelViews by James Berardinelli

A charming piece of cinema that takes several comfortable formulas and expands upon them in ingenious and emotionally-satisfying ways.
