Dir. Maren Ade. 2009, 119 mins. 35mm. With Birgit Minichmayr, Lars Eidinger. While on a lazy Mediterranean holiday, a young couple, Gitti and Chris—staying at Chris’s mother’s summerhouse—spiral through resentment and affection, mutual loathing and love. German director Maren Ade’s breakthrough anti-romance adheres without pity or sentimentality to its conceptual framework: a microscopic look at a relationship in crisis, or perhaps one that might already have passed the point of no return. It’s also—as in all the work of its director, who would become even better known for her epic comedy of embarrassment Toni Erdmann—often extremely funny as it uncovers the hypocrisies and blind spots of its young protagonists. “The central tension—in a film defined by frictions—is whether Gitti and Chris are better off together or apart. Everyone Else holds absolutely nothing back yet still leaves that tension unresolved, and it’s as good a filmic Rorschach as you’ll ever see.” —Eric Hynes, Reverse Shot
