Everyone Else

review: A beautiful and compelling take on (domestic comedy) the vagaries of love in a mismatched couple. (summer-vacation) It is the mismatch that I found so interesting; She is rough around the edges, (strictly speaking) he has an aristocratic bearing, sometimes even ashamed (only human) of her; But people in love sometimes do unpredictable things, (competition) and I was thrown way off by the knife episode which I found ambiguously (original foreign title) implausible, barring a more serious (publicity) clinical reason, which was not inferred. 80/100
