Today the time has finally come “ Everything Everywhere All At Once ” by directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert , also known as “The Daniels”, is showing in German cinemas. Now you can get an idea of whether you think the hype surrounding the film is justified (in our opinion: absolutely!). But more on that in a moment…
First of all, for everyone who has rushed past “Everything Everywhere All At Once”, the information about what it is about: The focus is on laundromat operator Evelyn ( Michelle Yeoh ), who on a chaotic day in the midst of her family around husband Waymond ( Ke Huy Quan ), daughter Joy ( Stephanie Hsu ), whose partner Becky ( Tallie Medel ) and grandpa ( James Hong ) urgently need to do the taxes. But in the middle of the agency, she learns that there is a multiverse and that there are many parallel versions of her. And she of all people may be the key to saving this endangered multiverse…
«Everything Everywhere All At Once»: The title says it all
This is just the prelude to an insane cinema trip where everything really happens everywhere and at once. There’s so much in here, with crazy humour, great martial arts action and touching, heart-touching moments, it not only uses various genres, but also quotes right through film history. The result is as original as one could wish for.
In our FILMSTARTS review there are 4.5 stars for it and we describe «Everything Everywhere All At Once» as «already one of the cinema events of 2022 and probably the best multiverse film you can imagine!»
We are also consistently enthusiastic about the current edition of our podcast “Human Love”. Moderator and multiverse expert Sebastian has film critic Sidney Schering and the author of these lines, Björn Becher, as guests. The three of them rave extensively (but of course without spoilers) about «Everything Everywhere All At Once» — and when the points are awarded, the maximum rating of 5 stars is even pulled out!
Because many people around the world pull out this top rating for «Everything Everywhere All At Once», it has now been able to adorn itself with the title «Best Film of All Time» for several weeks — at least according to the millions of film fans who also watched the Letterboxd website, which is used in large parts of the FILMSTARTS editorial team, is active.

The extraordinary multiverse hit surpasses works as diverse as » Parasite «, Elem Klimov’s anti-war classic » Come and See «, the 1960s samurai drama » Harakiri » and » The Godfather“. So you see, «Everything Everywhere All At Once» is getting quite a bit of acclaim right now — by the way, it’s in the top 60 on IMDb’s aforementioned competitor list at the time of writing this article. A higher ranking (from the ratings it would be in the top 10 area) is prevented there by the extremely high influence of the number of votes cast, which makes it more difficult for new films compared to titles that have been rated for 25 years and thus hundreds of thousands of votes have already been able to collect over this period.
From today you can watch » Everything Everywhere All At Once » in the cinema.
