Il Posto is a 1961 Italian film about the compromises a young man must make to help support his family. After graduation, Domenico Cantoni (Sandro Panseri) leaves his small hometown for the city of Milan, where he hopes to land a corporate job so he can send money to his struggling family. Domenico passes his interview and is promised a respectable job as an entry-level clerk. Even better, he meets another new employee, a pretty young woman named Magali (Loredana Detto). The two wander the city together after their interviews, hopeful about the future. Reality sets in when Domenico reports for his first day on the job and discovers that he has actually been assigned to work as a low-level messenger. Domenico's relationship with Magali fares no better; since they work in different departments, their schedules prevent them from seeing each other. Just when his prospects are at their bleakest, Domenico is offered an unexpected promotion, but the consequences to his freedom and individuality may be too great to bear.moreless
