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.

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

Stuber refuses to allow any action his protagonist Christian (Franz Rogowski) takes to truly go anywhere.

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.

While charm abounds, these promising moments are spaced sparsely throughout the film's weighty runtime and ultimately left me wanting more from this well-intentioned drama.

It's a chronicle of blue-collar workers who depend on each other for emotional sustenance. A deep sadness lurks under the laughs. It seeps under your skin.

Like a German In The Mood For Love, the film follows a difficult forbidden romance that is aesthetically beautiful to watch.
