does anyone happen to know any movies about postcrossing (or where one of the characters is a postcrosser) or something really close to the topic?
Postcards from the Edge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postcards_from_the_Edge_(film)
The Postman Always Rings Twice https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Postman_Always_Rings_Twice_(1981_film)
You’ve Got Mail https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You’ve_Got_Mail
The Postcard Killings https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Postcard_Killings
The Round Robin Movie https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6220632/
Those are movies that mention Postcrossing or just postcards in general?
I’ve actually seen Tag, and it’s nothing to do with Postcrossing or mail - it’s about a real life game of tag.
I think many people have seen You Got Mail, and since this is about online chatrooms and email relationships, I also don’t see it in this category?
Couldn’t find anything about the Round Robin Movie, but the movie poster on imdb suggests it’s about partying rather than exchanging postcards…
I watched You’ve Got Mail and Tag.
You’ve Got Mail was produced before Paulo created Postcrossing.
And I don’t remember at all that Postcrossing or even postcard was mentioned in Tag movie.
Well, it was a light-hearted response to what I assumed was a light-hearted question, which says “…or something really close to the topic”.
So sorry if I’m too flippant!
A recent Postcrossing blog:
Going back to the original question:
If Postcrossing had been in a movie, then we’d all know about it, because they’d have had to seek Paulo & Ana’s permission, and it would have been all over the blog on main website, and here, methinks.
A rare British comedy film about a super efficient postman and how his diligence got him in trouble
No Postcrossing but plenty of postal stuff to look at
I have yet to see The Postcard Killings but I read that it does focus on postcards albeit ones you probably don’t want…
I think that ‘Going postal’ is pretty much the movie about the spirit of postcrossing.
Especially the advertising Moist’s speech:
- Can you seal it with a loving kiss? can you cry tears onto a clacks, can you smell it, can you enclose a pressed flower? A letter is more than just a message.
And all the stuff with post being ineffective and its competition with internet (clacks)
An Honorable Mention to the movie Charade with Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. Spoiler alert: The missing fortune is invested in an expensive and rare postage stamp! I found myself wishing Alfred Hitchcock had lingered a bit longer on all the stamps both at the open air market and at the stamp collector’s desk.
