Everyone Else 2009

Alle Anderen (Everyone Else)

     Also titled Alle Anderen in German.  Chris and Gitti are a German couple on a Mediterranean vacation and they seem to be happy.  They’ve gone to Sardinia to spend time at Chris’ well-to-do family’s summer home.  Chris is an architect unable to persuade anyone to build one of his designs.  Gitti is a publicist for a not very popular rock group.  They have experienced their ups and downs in their relationships as well as their careers.  Hans and Sana are also on vacation, Hans is a successful architect and Sana is a well-respected artist. Chris and Gitti find their connection as a couple is tested as they interact with Hans and Sana.
     I may have watched a quarter of this movie and I couldn’t take anymore.  It’s a couple interested in themselves and their relationship only.  Talking and talking, arguing and arguing, the title is backwards, it should be No One Else.  2* (I didn’t like this movie)

119 min, Drama directed by Maren Ade with Birgit Minichmayr, Lars Eidinger, Hans-Jochen Wagner

Note:  Imdb 6.6 out of 10, 89% critic 59% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
