"Alles dreht sich, alles bewegt sich" or "Everything Turns, Everything Revolves" is a 3-minute black-and-white silent short film from over 85 years ago directed by German filmmaker Hans Richter. It is clearly visible that this one was inspired by the slapstick comedy of the famous silent film actors back then, but Richter gets nowhere with it and it lacks charm completely. This is a stage show mostly, but it's never an interesting watch and the only thing that makes a difference compared to what Méliès did over 30 years earlier is that you see the audience. One of Richter's more known works maybe, but certainly none of his best effort. Not recommended. Disappointing watch.
