IN THE AISLES

Two of Germany’s most wonderful new actors, Franz Rogowski (Transit) and Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann), light up this wistful romantic comedy with high-wattage chemistry, in the most unlikely of settings - the gray show-floo and break room of a big-box, discount grocery superstore. Socially awkward young Christian (Rogowski) manages to land himself a lowly job as a forklift operator in seemingly endless aisles of enormous warehouses. He soon notices Marion (Hüller) in the confectionery section - despite her barbed and prickly humor, Christian senses an inner loneliness that he can relate to. He soon falls in love with her, something the entire superstore staff is quick to notice, but Marion is married–even if rumor has it that the marriage is an unhappy Marion. When she unexpectedly goes on sick leave, Christian feels his old personal demons creeping back and pulling him into a black hole that threatens his precarious new stability. A hopeful, tender contemplation on the grandeur of human life.
