Starring Sandro Panseri, Loredana Detto
When young Domenico (Sandro Panseri) ventures from the small village of Meda to Milan in search of employment, he finds himself on the bottom rung of the bureaucratic ladder in a huge, faceless company. The prospects are daunting, but Domenico finds reason for hope in the fetching Antonietta (Loredana Detto). A tender coming-of-age story and a sharp observation of dehumanizing corporate enterprise, Ermanno Olmi’s IL POSTO (“The Job,” a.k.a. THE SOUND OF TRUMPETS) is a touching and hilarious tale of one young man’s stumbling entrance into the perils of modern adulthood.
