In the Aisles

125 minutes/color



Christian is new to the superstore. He mutely plunges into this unknown universe: the endless aisles, the eternal order of the warehouses, the surreal mechanisms of the forklift trucks. His colleague Bruno from the drinks department takes him under his wing, showing him all the tricks of the trade and soon becomes a fatherly friend. Marion from the confectionary department likes to have a bit of a laugh and a joke with Christian. When he falls in love with her, the entire warehouse is rooting for him. But Marion is married.
