Gala Premières and special events

"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 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." (Beta Cinema)

"A poignant and richly sympathetic film. Sandra Hüller shines in an intriguing fable about a giant supermarket, in which she plays a sweet counter manager with a fondness for a forklift driver." (The Guardian)

"We could spend forever watching two such interesting actors as Hüller and Rogowski glimmer at each other." (Variety)
