All My Loving
Stefan, Julia und Tobias are siblings. They are all experts in not talking about the things that really matter.
A cafe, three siblings: it‘s just a fleeting encounter in which not much is said. But it‘s the starting point in the life of three different characters who are fatefully tied to each other. Stefan (Lars Eidinger) is a pilot. The high altitude agrees with him. He switches partners like he switches time zones. Crashing into reality hits him all the more. He has been on sick leave for 6 months and his hearing impairment means the endsof his career. He is also losing his connection to his daughter who is being raised by his ex and is getting increasingly distant. His sister Julia (Nele Mueller-Stöfen) and her partner Christian (Godehard Giese) don‘t have children, but a trip to Italy and an injured street dog awakens her needs for one, the chasms open. In the meantime Tobias (Hans Löw) takes care of their father and is overwhelmed by the situation at home but doesn‘t admit it. All three protagonists of this episodic narrative carry problems with them and hide them until it reaches an escalation point. All three have children, which is a nice change of pace on the typical formula, and all three of them are portrayed by an excellent ensemble of actors. Director Edward Berger takes the threads to their logical end. ALL MY LOVING is a well-balanced, engaging family drama. It emphasizes the newcomer‘s craft, who surprised people at the Berlinale 5 years ago with his drama JACK and is embarking on his Hollywood debut with Michelle Williams, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
