Dear Paris German friends,

Let's meet to watch the German movie "Une valse dans les allées" / "In den Gängen" in original version!

The movie was selected to compete for the Golden Bear in the main competition section at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival and the main actor received the best award in Cannes festival. Director is Thomas Stubber, with Sandra Hüller (she played in the excellent Tony Erdmann that we went to see last year), Peter Kurth, and Franz Rogowski.

Pitch :
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.

The movie is in German language with French subtitles.
