Postman in the Mountains < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Huo Jianqi
Feature Film • 89 minutes • China

An old postman has spent his whole life delivering mail to the mountain of Hunan and is about to retire. His only son is due to take over his duties. As father and son journey through the mountains, the son begins to appreciate the toil and burden his father has to bear as postman for the villagers, and the old postman is also deeply moved as his son relates his mother’s anxiety as she waits for him to return home from every trip.
Postman in the Mountains has a slow and aesthetic story to tell. The rural Chinese countryside is beautiful. The characters give a slow and feeling performance. As a result the film pulls you in, in a quiet and thoughtful way.
