A touching and sensitive drama with Franz Rogowski, who won the German Film Award for Best Leading Actor.
The taciturn Christian (Franz Rogowski) is a new restocker and cleaner in the beverage department of a superstore. His older colleague Bruno (Peter Kurth) takes him under his wing, he explains the – more or less serious – conflicts between the departments and where secret smoking is possible.
In the adjacent aisle works Marion (Sandra Hüller). While she is stocking cookies and chocolate on the shelves, Christian watches her and seriously falls in love.

"IN THE AISLES is quiet, poetic, humorous, touching, devastating ... and above all, outstanding." (filmstarts.de)
