a great experience, finally a fantastic German film, sleeper hit!
3 May 2017 | by filmforever_42See all my reviews

I saw the film at the Berlin Film Festival and I haven't forgotten it since then. I don't want to give spoilers so in my review I am focusing on my experience and artistic details: First of all, the main actor Sebastian Hülk is a huge discovery. He is known from his smaller roles in films such as The White Ribbon (2009) and Inglourious Basterds (2009), and in this film he is playing the lead for the first time in his career. And it is incredible how - in a subtle style of acting - he achieves that the audience can follow him emotionally from one side to the other: from 'good' to 'evil', from 'insecure' to 'secure' etc. Each scene seems to open a new perspective on the mysterious, sexy and thrilling story about social ties, fears, danger and the spiritual abyss that lurks under a bourgeois surface. Director Asli Özge, who is a Turkish female, living in Berlin Germany since quite a while, has delivered her 3rd film, for the 1st time in German language though. All Of A Sudden is a surprisingly great achievement in filmmaking, feeling authentic with every breath, yet very cinematic with rich imagery and a tight narration, that is tackling many layers, and never losing its grip. I also would like to mention the beautiful cinematography and finely tuned sound design - which both is truly outstanding. Auf Einmal (All Of A Sudden) is a fantastic surprise coming from Germany, but telling a story that is entertaining and relevant also for an international audience. I saw press reviews were great, not only in Germany but also internationally, and I cannot wish more than a huge audience for this sleeper hit.
