Movie Info

After the shy and reclusive Christian loses his job, he starts to work for a wholesale market. Bruno from the Beverage aisle takes him under his wing and quickly becomes a fatherly friend to him. He shows him the ropes and patiently teaches him how to operate the fork lift. In the aisles he meets "Sweets"-Marion. He is instantly smitten by her mysterious charm. The coffee machine becomes their regular meeting point and the two start to get to know each other. But Marion is married and Christian's feelings for her seem to remain unrequited, especially when Marion does not return to work one day. Christian slowly becomes a member of the wholesale market family and his days of driving fork lifts and stacking shelves mean much more to him than meets the eye.

Critic Reviews for In the Aisles (In den Gängen)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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.

February 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Finds beauty and stylish choreography as workers go about their regular tasks, affection and understanding as they share glances across the shelves, and camaraderie as they weather ups and downs both inside and outside the store.

June 12, 2018 | Full Review…

As we meander through the aisles, it is melancholy and poignancy that become the driving forces, and this switch in tone is slightly too jarring. It's the only fault in an otherwise outstanding feature.

March 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The tender, tentative romance between Christian and Marion is affecting, personal, and a succinct representation of the desperation to find love in alienating surroundings.

In the Aisles is a poignant and richly sympathetic film.
