Mario can’t swim and can’t fish. He is considered useless in the small fishing village he lives in, on an island off the coast of Naples. When the poet Pablo Neruda is exiled to the island Mario is recruited by the post master to deliver Neruda’s copious mail. He becomes entranced by Neruda’s power with language and uses him to help court the beautiful Beatrice who works in the café. One of only a handful of foreign language films to be nominated for an Oscar as best film.
