The story of Burning Patience will be somehow similar to the book on which it is based. It is very clear that the genre of the movie is a love story. As mentioned above the protagonist of the story will be a young man named Mario by profession he is a fisherman initially and by ambitions he wants to be a poet.
He tries to conquer his beloved by taking the help of the very well-renowned poet Pablo Neruda.
As soon as Mario becomes The postman of Pablo Neruda he enters into a world full of metaphors and verses which help him fulfill not only his desire to be a writer by heart but also to win the heart of a lady named Beatriz, who is basically his dream girl.
“Your chest is enough for my heart, my wings are enough for your freedom. From my mouth it will reach the sky…” these were the first few lines that Mario wrote for her dream girl and by reading them we can easily analyze the depth of love Mario has for her lady love.
But surprisingly the lady of Mario was disappointed in him as she knew that the lines were not his own but Pablo’s.
