Critic Reviews for Every Thing Will Be Fine
It's a well-photographed story with an intriguing setup, but soon we're mired in a meandering, stilted story with forced dialogue and some surprisingly subpar performances from the talented cast.
Wenders has a history of employing exceptional cinematographers (such as Robby Müller), and here gets fine work from Benoit Debie, whose glowing landscapes and interiors contribute at least as much as the script.
A small but taut drama in which the beautiful physical details jumping off the screen only serve to emphasize an ill-defined setting and major insufficiencies in the script and performances.
With backing from producers in no less than five countries and director of the gravitas of Wim Wenders - not to mention a solid cast - you'd think Every Thing Will Be Fine would be more impressive than it turns out to be.
Wenders is trying to do new things within the confines of a pretty standard European art-film scenario, and the viewer can see he's not approaching the material as though it's rote ...
Audience Reviews for Every Thing Will Be Fine
This drama about a novelist who kills a little boy in a car accident while staying in contact with the mother over the years has a few really beautifully shot images. Still, similar to the protagonist, who is trying to end his life a few months later before going on a slow trip towards redemption, the emotions here are somewhat supressed and do not allow the audience to really feel with the characters. It doesn't help that some dialogs don't feel very life-like and the solution seems rather random.
I can't stop thinking how unnecessary - even if very well made - the 3D is in this uneven film, and, although James Franco is great as always, the film's confused attempt at becoming a thriller at a certain point doesn't work and it all falls flat with an unconvincing resolution.
