Film Series: Il Posto

1961. Italy. Dir: Ermanno Olmi. With Sandro Panseri. 98 min. 35mm print!

To support his family a young man joins a large company in Milan, where he meets a woman in a similar situation; however, their relationship is strained by the soul-sucking nature of the modern workplace. Olmi explores the effects of a recently industrialized Italy on the younger generation in this touchingly subtle Neorealist coming-of-age tale.
