IN THE AISLES
IN DEN GÄNGEN
2018, Music Box Films, 125 min, Germany, Dir: Thomas Stuber

A moving portrait of blue-collar workers, IN THE AISLES follows Christian (Franz Rogowski), an aspiring forklift driver, as he acclimates to a new job in a wholesale market in an eastern German province. Although the bleak, mundane life of an overnight stocker quickly sets in, Christian finds himself in the middle of a complicated romance with one of his coworkers, played by TONI ERDMANN star Sandra Hüller. Thanks to its arresting visual design and bold music choices, the film strikes a delicate balance between hopeless monotony and charming romanticism. A Golden Bear nominee at the Berlinale and winner of best lead actor at the German Film Awards. “A poignant and richly sympathetic film.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
