That is how bad this thing was.
Steelrain
Mild comedic moments along with some fairly depressing drama make for a slow ride and not a very climatic ending.

I was expecting a bit more from the movie.

`Alle Anderen' is an astonishingly good film that I really didn't see coming. It was recommended to me from some friends and it certainly looked up my ally (I'm surprised I didn't hear of it first myself) so I dove in without hesitation. What I found was something far deeper and far more profound than I expected.

It moved me.

The film is simple. It follows a young couple, Gitti and Chris, as they discover themselves and their relationship over a vacation in Italy. Chris and Gitti are a new couple. Although this isn't explicitly addressed, it is pretty obvious by their demeanor and their brand of turmoil. Childless and searching for direction in their relationship and their lives, Gitti and Chris seem like your average couple really. The beauty of it all is that they are. They are happy, not ridiculously so but certainly happy. They have their worries and problems and troubles but they don't hate one another and they don't want an out to their relationship. But, like most normally happy people in relationships they are still testing out, they smell trouble when they encounter another couple who is so much happier (seemingly) than they are. Once the couples begin to interact they begin to dissect one another far too much; at least Gitti and Chris fall into that pattern. Soon, what was working is all of a sudden not working at all and the relationship begins to fray.

It makes you question what `happy' really means.

Maren Ade beautifully layers `Alle Anderen' with all the right details, embellishing and fleshing out this relationship with an effortless quality. It is so real and honest in its depiction of your everyday worries and trials. Nothing seems overdone or overworked.

i'm pretty sure you will like this movie.

birgit minichmayr is really fantastic. i wasn't familiar with her. she has an unstable subtext that keeps tension throughout. i am busy searching for more movies with her right now, no avail. the realism in the relationship has an authentic quality and a passion that will remind you of what it's like to be about a year into an intense relationship, and also remind you of what it's like to be slightly terrified of how it will end.

it's beautiful to look at, check it out.

***1/2

Similar in style and tone to last year's "Blue Valentine," the German film "Everyone Else" provides us with an oblique look at a troubled relationship. Though the couple in this film does not seem as overtly unhappy as the one in the American work, there is still something clearly eating away at their relationship. The most admirable aspect of the screenplay by Maren Ade is that it doesn't throw easy labels onto either the characters or the problems they're facing. The movie is really more a piece of objective reportage chronicling their lives over the course of a few days than a plot- and theme-driven narrative leading us to a preordained conclusion about them as people.

Chris (Lars Eidinger) is a gifted but apparently not very successful architect, while Gitti (Birgit Minichmayr), his girlfriend, who works in the recording business, seems to be generally supportive of his efforts. Chris and Gitti are spending a relaxing vacation at his mother's home on the Mediterranean, when Gitti begins to off-handedly question Chris's masculinity (we assume that it has more to do with his lack of initiative and drive than with his personal mannerisms). In response, Chris begins to treat Gitti in an ever more callous fashion, trying to prove her wrong by acting in the dismissive and domineering way he assumes "real" men do, and in the way, if Gitta is any indication, women apparently want them to.

But this synopsis really only covers the tip of the iceberg, for there are clearly many more complex dynamics taking place within this relationship that are not so easily delineated and described.

An eloquent film surrounding the negotiations and power struggles within relationships. Visually stunning camerawork and Sardinia is seductive, evocative. Well written screenplay and compelling acting. Intelligent all the way around.

The movie surprised me in that I was expecting a low-tech throwaway film to pass the time with. The film touched off a series of harrowing, even heartbreaking scenes I was not prepared for. The pacing was spot-on, near flawless direction. The acting was superb. These are two characters you root for, that they will find common ground and a solvency that will keep them together. The fissures in their relationship are seen more clearly by the audience but not necessarily by the characters, and this is part of the joy of watching. They may be doomed to find others but you still hold out hope for them, even at the end.

A very small movie with a very small plot consisting mostly of the two main characters sitting around and driving around while whining about their mutual sensitivity. It takes place in Sardinia, but you would never know it, as tt could have been filmed in any one room house with an overgrown back yard.
