When the reclusive Christian (Franz Rogowski, TRANSIT) takes a job working the night shift at a big-box store, his new manager, Bruno from the Beverage Department (Peter Kurth, BABYLON BERLIN), teaches him the lay of the land and the delicacy it takes to operate a forklift. Christian becomes enamored by his charming but mysterious co-worker "Sweets Marion" (Sandra Hüller, ANATOMY OF A FALL, THE ZONE OF INTEREST, TONI ERDMANN), with whom he begins to share flirtatious break-room coffees and conversations. But Marion has secrets of her own, and when she suddenly goes on sick leave, Christian is tempted to fall into habits of his dark past. An affecting and bittersweet glimpse into the shared connections of a motley group of workers, IN THE AISLES quietly celebrates the beauty in the day-to-day and the collective pride we take in our jobs with dark humor and nuance. (Note courtesy of Music Box Films.) DIR/SCR Thomas Stuber; SCR Clemens Meyer, from his short story; PROD Jochen Laube, Fabian Maubach. Germany, 2018, color, 125 min. In German with English subtitles. NOT RATED
