The Excellently Intense Complexity of Interpersonal Relationships as Played Out in Glamorous International Locales

Presenting Everyone Else, German diector Maren Ade’s new film, starring Birgit Minichmayr, Lars Eidinger, and Hans-Jochen Wagner, in which a young couple’s relationship is pushed to the brink while vacationing in the Mediterranean. On the surface, Chris, a brilliant architect, and Gitti, a publicist for an unknown rock band, appear blissfully in love while enjoying the sun and sand of Sardinia. But as they spend more time together, their playful teasing and silly games begin to unmask hidden fears and desires. When they accidentally run into another, seemingly happier and more successful couple (another architect and his artist girlfriend), the tensions between them erupt. Everyone Else is the quintessential breakup movie, which means the kindnesses, cute gestures, and happily-ever-afters of a typical screen romance are replaced by pettiness, ugly slights, backbiting, and the kind of hurt that only the most intimate are capable of inflicting on each other.

Secrets and lies: Lars Eidinger and Birgit Minichmayr portray a young couple vacationing in Sardinia in the German film Everyone Else.
