Il Posto

We continue our Classic Italian Film Series with Il Posto a film by Ermanno Olmi.

With Ermanno Olmi’s Il posto, the second film in our series, we remain in Milan, where Il Generale della Rovere ends. Il posto, however, opens at the outskirts of the city, where the protagonist, Domenico lives with his family, in a rural house that is still in the countryside but that we sense will soon be eaten up by the inexorable urban development of Italy’s economic boom.

Il posto, though, refers not so much to a place, as to a position, a job, the in/famous “posto fisso,” or secure “job for life.” Young Domenico is headed to the city center to participate in a job selection on the part of a giant corporation with few openings available. Olmi is skilled at following his character through the labyrinthine meanders of the company with its long and anonymous corridors, and at observing the seeming senseless tasks that the candidates are required to perform, a foreshadowing of the repetitive years that lie ahead for the lucky ones who will be hired.
