Audience Reviews for Il Posto

A great film depicting office work in the post war period in Italy. The lead comes across as terribly sweet. Thanks to TIFF for including it in their Cinematheque programming.

A deceptively simple, emotional film. This coming of age tale captures the fleeting and beautiful nuances of love along with the deadness inherent in corporate work life. An unforgettable ending.

A masterpiece that captures and translates emotions in a vivid and compelling way. It made me feel the uneasyness, the echoes of shoes walking through large and empty corridors, eyes staring at you, unfriendly attitudes, unbearable monotony, complete hollowness of life or goals, very brief joy... now I'm really scared...

This movie is genius. I love the way that the film that the ordinary seem extraordinary with simple things like camera movements and interesting angles. The story is simple and the cinematography is amazing. The lead actor is great, but it's mostly because of his facial expressions that you sympathize with a lot. It's like Micheal Cera has watched this movie and created a career out of it.
