Poster for In the Aisles

Franz Rogowski (Victoria) and Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann) lead this lyrical drama about friendship and romance in a wholesale market. More

"Rogowski, who also appears in Transit at SFF this year, plays Christian, a shy man who takes a job at a wholesale market. There, he discovers a mysterious world between the aisles. Bruno from Beverages takes Christian under his wing, showing him the ropes and briefing him on the rivalries and alliances between the various departments. And when Christian meets the charming and enigmatic Marion (Hüller) from Sweets, he is smitten. Marion, he learns, is married, and their path to love will not be easy. Through these relationships, friendships, lives and deaths, the market’s aisles contain the full gamut of human interactions and emotions." (Sydney Film Festival)

We could spend forever watching two such interesting actors as Hüller and Rogowski glimmer at each other, his bashful hopefulness meeting her considering eyes, which are strangely serious however merry or mischievous her expression.

With the aid of affecting performances and a good eye for the virtuoso moves of a forklift truck, director Thomas Stuber mines the magical in the mundane.

Hollywood Reporter

A lyrical portrait of emotionally damaged misfits sharing a soulless working environment in contemporary East Germany, In the Aisles is full of tender observation and humane empathy for its downtrodden protagonists.
