Movie Info

Dona Flor is a bureaucrat. It is in beige Everything That Comprises her, her non-descript blouse, practical heels and knee-length skirts. For over three Decades she has Attended frustrated and indignant Citizens to Whom she is nothing but an invisible bureaucrat lifeless, and have returned each evening to her cat and solitary apartment Where She Makes obsessive lists of the people she Attended to during the day. Inspired by Hannah Arendt's notion That bureaucracy is one of the worst forms of violence, "Everything else" explores the inner life of Dona Flor as she Attempts to resurface. A kind of "observational narrative" the film is a mesmerizing contemplation on solitude.

  • Natalia Almada's study of a career civil servant suffering a late-life crisis works best when it plumbs the connections between bureaucracy and violence.

  • After an outstanding career as a documentary filmmaker, Natalia Almada (El Velador, 2011, El General, 2009) fills the screen with a story that moves, terrifies and, in a certain way, fills us with life. [Full review in Spanish]
