  Actually, yes it all begins with a rather idyllic and subversive wit: A young couple from Germany, the architect, Chris (Lars Eidinger) and the PR manager Gitti (Brigitte Minichmayr) spend a carefree time in the House of Chris’ parents in Sardinia. It quickly becomes clear how divided the roles in this respect are: Chris is more of the introverted, brooding and insecure guy who questioned everything and who never wants to define as Gitti is loud, brash and demanding. Clearly, that are inevitable in this respect, the conflicts and will increase over the course of a vacation more and more. And amplifies itself subtly and ever downward spiral of misunderstanding and drifting apart even further when Chris and Gitti on Hans (Hans-Jochen Wagner) and take his wife Sana (Nicole Marischka), which are all the things Chris and Gitti not be want – self-assurance and patronizing toward all others in the case of Hans and cheerfully submissive as Sana. Even if they are loathe the two acquaintances from the ground up, Hans and Sana but to something like models, because apparently even seems to work well on their relationship. But what for one is good, it must happen with the others not by a long, come quickly, the two travelers to the limits of their relationship. And, indeed every word, every glance, every gesture is measured from now placed to weigh and evaluate …

As in the forest for the trees, it appears Maren Ade in her new movie All others as an accurate observer of human relationships and looks primarily to the wounds and injuries, the misunderstandings and outbreaks, which cause people. This is partly true in some situations incredibly funny – especially when one feels thrown back as a spectator to himself – the other at some places but incredibly painful. Despite the great scenes of the film a total of Drive and the vortex-like effect by Maren Ade debut missing, too much remains pure state description and spins in circles, as well as the relationship between Chris and Gitti. But maybe it’s just the normal ranges (love) life …

All others undecided between hysteria, boredom and the realization that there is really nothing to say and acts over long distances as an acting improvisation that someday their goal has lost a little out of sight. And this is short) because of the shockingly authentic actors and Maren Ade grand debut but then a real disappointment.
