Il Postino (The Postman)

poster from

I was going through my ipod and found the soundtrack of Il Postino. I love this movie. It was nominated in the 1995 Academy as the Best Picture of the Year. The characters, the story of friendship, love and life. Pablo Neruda is such a brilliant poet. Check out one of his poems that I adore. The narration below was by Andie Garcia and Julia Roberts. A few of his other poems are also in the soundtrack. Among the other narrators are Pablo Neruda himself, Madonna, Ethan Hawke, Wesley Snipes, Glenn Close, Ralph Fiennes, Willem Dafoe among others.

If you haven't seen it try to borrow and watch the dvd or listen to its soundtrack, and let me know what you think.

Happy Thursday lovelies!

Sonnet LXXXI
by Pablo Neruda

And now you're mine. Rest with your dream in my dream.
Love and pain and work should all sleep, now.
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
and you are pure beside me as a sleeping amber.

No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go,
we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Your hands have already opened their delicate fists
and let their soft drifting signs drop away; your eyes closed like two gray
wings, and I move

after, following the folding water you carry, that carries
me away. The night, the world, the wind spin out their destiny.
Without you, I am your dream, only that, and that is all.
