EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE. Phenomenon film in the United States, Everything Everywhere all at once was released in France this Wednesday, August 31, 2022. The critics’ opinion.
[Mis à jour le 31 août 2022 à 10h50] Will France succumb to the Everything everywhere all at once madness? The phenomenon film directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (nicknamed “the Daniels”) was finally released in cinemas in France this Wednesday, August 31, 2022. Che feature re-explores the concept of the multiverse with an aging Chinese immigrant, who must save the world by exploring alternate realities and the lives she could have led. The film made a surprise hit when it was released five months ago, collecting for the moment, 97 million dollars at the worldwide box office (for a budget of 25 million dollars).
At the international level, critics are won over: the American review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives it 95% positive opinions from the press and 89% from spectators. But what about the French press? She is also seduced by the Daniels’ cinema proposal, garnering a 4/5 star rating on Allociné. Among the positive reviews, The Parisian even considers that Everything Everywhere all at once is “as original as it is crazy and phenomenal”, moving and creative, nothing less. Franceinfo salutes a “complete work, which innovates and has fun by leaving the classic codes of action movie.” Le Figaro is also won over, calling it “wacky, fantastic, at the crossroads of all narrative paths”. The screenplay of the feature film, which explores the multiverse, thus promises to be totally original, while the press emphasizes that it “disorients the codes” (Rolling Stones) of cinema, even tipping over into the “mess on a cosmic scale” (Première). A cinema proposal definitely apart to discover in theaters!
