Corner Shop, The

Armed with humor and good intentions the brothers fight a battle against more efficient models of consumption. How far do you go to help your fellow neighbour and how many phrases can you possibly know on the topic of potatoes and chewing gum? This is an unusual love story, a funny and intimate film that shows the art of shopkeeping in a new light.
