This is a really delicate music about a really delicate film. Outstanding the choice to insert poems by Pablo Neruda read by different artist.
Highly recommended.

Il Postino is one of my favourite films, although I break my heart every time I watch it, i love the story, the music and who could not love Massimo. When I finally found the soundtrack on Amazon I was delighted, on reading the reviews I decided to purchase the edition that also includes Pablo Neruda s poems, it is truly delightful.

If you want to just sit back with your headphone and relax then this CD is certainly for you. Be romantic and buy this for your partner. All of the poems are read with feeling by an array of celebrities and certainly do justice to Pablo Neruda's work. Enjoy then buy the film on DVD.

Mediteranean Flair, Literary Appeal 22 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Romantic, charming, yet simple and poignant is the main theme from the Postman. As if that weren't beautiful enough, it is also recorded in various arrangements (harpsichord and string, for one, anda guitar and bandoneon versio). All are delightful!
What was also a pleasant surprise was the poetry recitals on the CD (these were not actually in the movie). I found myself repeatedly listening to Morning by Sting and to Poetry by Miranda Richardson. Much of the music is accompanied by the beautiful themes of the movie, too. Perhaps the greatest consequence of the CD was that it led me to Neruda's Poetry (love sonnets, odes). The poetry on the disc is just the surface. Did you know Neruda won the Nobel Prize for his beautiful poetry in 1971?
Musically and poetically, this CD is a must-have.

enchanting, poignant, sensuous, captivating 15 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are hunting for passion, romance, and love, then call off the three-headed hounds. Like the goddess Diana, this soundtrack evokes memories of a hunt. Hunt no more.
Pablo Neruda's poetry and Luis Bacalov's music, like lovers, entwine beautifully and magnificently. The two truly become "one." This disc will make your heart skip. It will move you. Further, this soundtrack is like a soul you never have met, but love with your heart.
I rarely gush about anything, much less music. However, I will make an exception with this one.
At risk of sounding pedantic, or worse, didactic, ANYONE, with an ounce of romance, should own this CD.
You will not be disappointed. You will be carried away.

Wonderful Music, Distracting Stars 10 July 2003
By Stephen Haske - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really, really, really like this music. I'm not sure if I emphasized that enough. This is a beautiful melancholy (and at the same time joyful) and textured mix of regional folk music and modern movie theme aesthetics. It fits perfectly with the gorgeous movie and it's Neruda-inspired romanticism. But it transcends the movie and becomes universal (see new symphonic arrangements appearing on the orchastra scene).
However, I really, really, really don't like the first half of the CD. In fact, I made a copy of the CD without the Readings From The Stars, so it wouldn't distract so. Perhaps this was added by Miramax so it would be more sellable? Would the reading of Neruda's poems be included if they didn't get the stars to read them? I highly doubt it. I'm sure it was Lew Wasserman's (or some other top brass at the studio) idea, who then pulled his strings. And now he smiles every time a Julia Roberts fan finds Il Postino. It's great cross-marketing, and makes for bad art.
This would get 10 stars from me on the strength of Luis Bacalov's stirring music, but I had to do something about all those damn celebrities.

truly beautiful 10 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is truly beautiful. It transported me. I would like to say I first heard it in a bubble bath, with candlelight, sipping champagne...but if the truth be known, I was driving home from dropping my child off at school. What a trip. I felt in love, I felt beautiful, I cried. In our very busy and routine lives, which most of us lead happily, we need to be transported once in awhile to that romantic, wonderful, dream-like state this CD can bring us to. Enjoy.

The Purity of Romantic Love 13 Jun. 2000
By Valiant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Have you ever listened to a CD that sent you off into blissful place of peaceful solitude? Then you will love the simple, yet astonishingly beautiful songs and poetic lyrics of this haunting soundtrack. Like discovering a quaint village frozen in time, the music and poetry will lift your spirits to a place of magical beauty, where love and romance reign eternal for those fortunate enough to taste its tender fruits.
