The little rituals, secrets and frustrations of a couple over the course of one summer. The film centres on Gitti and Chris, whose holidays take a different turn when they meet another, apparently perfect couple. The comparison and imitation completely upset the balance of their relationship.
The winner of the Grand Prix and Best Actress prizes at Berlin, Everyone Else confirms German director Maren Ade as a great new talent. Ade’s film is deeply immersed in its characters, exploring the nuances of relationships and situations with incredible, rich insight.
