Olmi's partially autobiographical 'Il Posto' is a satirical take on the alienation of office life. Domenico, a boy from the suburbs, goes for a job with a big corporation in Milan. Applying with him is Antonietta, to whom he takes a teenage fancy. After a gruelling entry process both he and Antonietta are accepted, and Domenico begins his life as a corporate worker. As he observes his fellow employees, many of whom have been there for years, he begins to anticipate the reality that lies in front of him.
