A charming and witty portrait of a grocery store in São Paulo, MY DARLING SUPERMARKET follows the day-to-day lives of its employees—a panoply of workers steeped in the confining space of the store. Humor, drama, mystery, romance—and even quantum physics—coexist alongside milk cartons, meat cuts, bar codes, and security cameras as these individuals try to subvert the mundane and cope with the drudgeries of low-wage labor. Between repetitive actions such as stocking shelves and scanning groceries, these anonymous supermarket employees reflect frankly on their lives, society, and the role they dream of playing in it.
In Portuguese with English subtitles.
