Synopsis

“Everyone Else” tells the story of an uneven couple (Chris and Gitti), who are struggling through a holiday in secluded togetherness. We get to know two people as they can only be when they're alone: their secret rituals, silly habits, unfulfilled desires and power struggles. The encounter with another couple leads their relationship to falter. The others are not only more successful; they are also adept at maintaining a conventional male-female relationship behind a modern façade. Chris starts to model himself upon them, attempting to enforce boundaries on his idiosyncratic girlfriend. This shakes Gitti's faith in him. Her attempt to conform to his new ideal goes from being a daring flirtation with a new role to become a silent war against herself. Whilst Chris blossoms in the role of the strong one, and opens towards Gitti in a new way, Gitti is in danger of losing herself.

The leads are played by Birgit Minichmayr and Lars Eidinger. Shooting took place in Sardinia in Summer 2007.
