  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Il posto

    >>> Une oeuvre étonnante et lucide de la flamboyante période du néo-réalisme italien, faite d'observation minutieuse, sur fond de tangible et désabusé constat d'une triste fatalité économique et sociale, toujours d'actualité...

  7. TheCinemaAdventurist's rating of the film Il posto

    Italian Jake Gyllenhaal kid is great in this movie! coming of age movie that is beautiful film about having a crush and the soul crushing life of mundane jobs.

  8. mubianer's rating of the film Il posto

    Nice to watch after having seen other post-war films by people like Antonioni and Fellini. I think the first part is best, plus the final scene. Humanist cinema.

  9. kartina obskura's rating of the film Il posto

    not able to sleep a night before the exam, anxiety, what will happen, there are so many candidates, what are the question like, ok this was not so bad, oh she´s pretty should i approach her, should i ask her for a coffee, don´t look too much in her direction, pretend you´re looking around, oh she´s looking at me too, what is the job like this is my first time, anxiety, where is she it´s raining, there she is but not

  12. paxy's rating of the film Il posto

  13. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Il posto

    As in most Olmi films, the parent-offspring relationship and the blooming of first love of young people tower. The end sequence is remarkable. The film ends with the clackety-clack sound of a stencil copier and no music. It is preceded by a significant and quixotic movement of clerks from one desk to another. Olmi communicates so much to the viewer without a word spoken. This will remain a great end sequence for me.

  14. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Il posto

    Una película sensible y humana. Olmi es un artesano de la vida al rebuscar entre la rutina el eco universal. Temas como el primer trabajo, el amor adolescente. El personaje del filme tiene una timidez que enternece, una que por cierto solo se manifiesta en la zona pública, más no en la zona íntima, espacio donde se comporta como el hermano mayor. Una película de situaciones simples aunque transcendentales en una vida

  15. ihor's rating of the film Il posto

    The Italian “economic miracle” brought unprecedented economic growth for Italy. No longer was there the dire economic plight to survive that characterized earlier Italian neorealism. Success, prosperity and the path towards a middle class life is paved for young Antonietta in the film yet happiness is still not apparent. Capitalism may be bring material prosperity, but tedious dehumanizing hierarchies persist.

  16. Quesera,sera's rating of the film Il posto

  17. Victoria L.'s rating of the film Il posto

    The impression this movie makes on you differs according to your age and life point. That being said, I did enjoy the moments of relative uneasiness and overwhelming romance but that joy was quite crushed by the one-way conclusion the end implies.

  18. Pymo's rating of the film Il posto

    The taste of a coffee is different in the city.

  19. Nalini Misra's rating of the film Il posto

    why is this not essential viewing for everyone who has ever had a job?

  20. Tida Wilson's rating of the film Il posto

    So powerful. This one will linger for awhile.

  21. © <',))( Astro-Tofupraxographer's rating of the film Il posto

    Like the TV show The Wire, this film's ability to show realistic events have them progress like real life rather than using devices that we're so used to in films ironically makes this film feel like it transcends reality. Very simple and unpretentious, it's really quite wonderful.

  22. lndah's rating of the film Il posto

    a secure job for life. huh

  23. Jordan Towles's rating of the film Il posto

    A serious version of Office Space. People who live out this sort of day to day experience may find this hard to watch, while others will find affirmation in its soul crushing message.

  24. Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Il posto

    Like poetry to me. In its simplicity Il posto says too much. Olmi succeds showing how dehumanizing big corporations can be: all those endless corridors, the monotony, the gulf between people. Terribly true and poignant. But what really captivated me in this coming-of-age film is how everything is shown through the expressivity of Panseri's eyes: naive, lost, scared, passionate. The last 20 minutes are unforgettable.
