Director Link succeeds in translating this Percival-like narrative temperament into images that do not need to prove anything, but instead, with curiosity, watch the family bustle in which their young hero gradually finds his role in life. What makes “All About Me” magical is our sensing its willingness to follow the hero anywhere in the world, unconditionally and full of affection.
“This parcival-like narrative temperament is translated by director Link into images that don't want to prove anything, but rather curiously watch the family bustle in which their young hero gradually finds his role in life."
"The magic of "All about me“ is what makes this film so special that you actually think you are ready to follow the hero unconditionally and with affection anywhere in the world."
“Before this film, one had almost forgotten how good and quite un-embarrassing it can be to feel moved.“
