After the shy and reclusive Christian loses his job, he starts to work for a wholesale market. In the aisles he meets Marion and is instantly smitten by her mysterious charm, but she is married and his feelings seem to remain unrequited. As Christian slowly becomes a member of the market family, his days of driving fork lifts and stacking shelves mean much more to him than meets the eye. “In the Aisles” is based on the short story by German cult author Clemens Meyer and directed by Student Oscar winner Thomas Stuber. It’s a film in the tradition of poetic realism, which hasn’t been given much space in contemporary German cinema up to now, but which has so often captivated us on the international scene.
