In the Aisles In den Gängen

Thomas Stuber / Germany / 2018 / 125 min / German

When Christian loses his job on a construction site, he begins working at a supermarket. The introverted young man is soon taken under the fatherly wings of Bruno from the drinks aisle and falls in love with the secretive Marion, who stacks the confectionary shelves. They begin to meet frequently at the coffee machine, and Marion begins to warm up to this newcomer...


Christian is new to the superstore. Filling the endless aisles is a solitary pursuit, especially during nightshift. Still, his colleague Bruno from the drinks department takes him under his wing, soon becoming a fatherly friend. The charming Marion likes to have a bit of a laugh and a joke with Christian. His lonely days seem to be over when he falls in love with her. But Marion is married, albeit unhappily by all accounts. Christian now falls into a deep hole, and his miserable old life threatens to engulf him once more.

“GDR and the dissolution, that's all been told, that doesn't interest me, what interests me is the post-change, the places and lifeworlds. I'd like to explore what's special about these people and these places. I’d like to give voice to these marginal characters. I’d like to tell big, powerful stories, which one would understand in Bangkok and New York.” (Thomas Stuber)
