Dir. Ermanno Olmi
In Italian with English subtitles
Rating: [G]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama

Topics: Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: This Italian neo-realist classic is a simply told yet beautiful depiction of a small-town boy whose employment search in Milan lands him on the bottom rung of a faceless corporation but who finds reprieve in the distraction of a fetching young female employee.

"A tender coming-of-age story and a sharp observation of dehumanizing corporate enterprise, Olmi’s Il Posto is a touching and hilarious tale of one young man’s stumbling entrance into the perils of modern adulthood." ~ Criterion Collection
