IL POSTO
ITALY 1961
Director: ERMANNO OLMI
Sat Jun 30 7:00 PM & 9:00 PM Whitsell Auditorium

Humane, heartbreaking, and sometimes painfully funny, IL POSTO chronicles the (mis)fortunes of a young Milanese man who applies for a job in a large firm, suffers the alienation and humiliations of office life, and strikes up a relationship with a secretary (played by Olmi's wife) in hopes of escaping both his smothering family and his numbing work routine. Shot with a non-professional cast, "[IL Posto] has a precise sense of timing and reveals Olmi's brilliant talent for capturing the comic, pompous and sometimes sad way people behave"-Georges Sadoul. Winner of the Grand Prize, London Film Festival and Critics' Prize at the Venice Film Festival. (90 min)
