In this edgy comedy drama from director Maren Ade, Chris (Lars Eidinger) and Gitti (Birgit Minichmayr) are a couple whose relationship has more than its share of ups and downs; she works as a publicist for a rock group whose career is going nowhere in particular, while he's an architect who hasn't been able to persuade anyone to build one of his designs just yet. While Gitti's career isn't much, it's enough to give her head-of-the-household status, to Chris' chagrin. Chris and Gitti are spending some time at his well-to-do family's summer home in Sardinia, and they… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like Cassavetes' A Woman Under the Influence, Ade's film is as unpredictable and ambiguous as it is raw."
‑ Rob Nelson, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Resolutely odd, near static at times and yet strangely effective, Everyone Else goes nowhere in particular, but then that's the point."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Notable for its realism ... striking in its simple relatability."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"They are uncomfortable together, even more uncomfortable with themselves when they are alone. They are also awkward with their friends. Have I left anything out?"
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"If you haven't been in this relationship, then you surely know someone who has: Chris and Gitti are as recognizably human as a glance in the morning mirror, and just as strangely distorted."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"It's about private, emotional phenomena: the tiny tremors and imperceptible shifts that bring a couple closer together or drive them apart, almost without their noticing."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"It's an impressive achievement: The film reveals things about each person's inner world, and how it looks to the other, without making us feel as if we're lost in a house of mirrors."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"It has some stiffness around the edges, but its emotional truth is beyond reproach."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Engrossing, talky, intimate romantic drama."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Maren Ade's sophisticated, incisive storytelling relies not on screaming matches but on the leads' marvelous attunement to each other, the ways in which they snag on the barest flickers of intimated feeling in each other's performances."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"This is a film that will surely try the patience of some, but there's wisdom here: jagged shards of wisdom, at the very least."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"All that's certain is that we're getting to know these two characters exceptionally well and that their tics and flaws are as recognizable as our own."
‑ Dan Kois, Washington Post
"...there are some authentic moments as this charts the drip, drip, dripping dissolution of a romance."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"Don't be fooled by the eye-candy..the interpersonal wars being fought on a micro-scale in this film are as intense as anything in Restrepo or The Hurt Locker."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
"Is this Germany's answer to the American "mumblecore" movement? When the digital-video-shot "Everyone Else" (2009) begins, we have no idea who the attractive, young couple front and center are, what they do for a living or where they are, for that matter."
‑ James Verniere, Boston Herald
