Every Thing Will Be Fine Directed by Wim Wenders
Wenders treats this potentially melodramatic material in a low-key style, suggesting a return to his European roots while simultaneously revealing the influence of the American auteurs he has previously declared allegiance to. The mise en scène is strikingly rich, utilizing complex patterns of imagery: a Narusian tracking shot showing Tomas’s second encounter with Kate will be repeated later, with the camera moving in the opposite direction, as Tomas walks through a forest with Christopher.

Every Thing Will Be Fine is no masterpiece, but it is a return to some kind of form… Wenders’s choice to film a drama of mostly interiors in 3D is something we haven’t seen much of. Thus we have a movie in which each inside master shot gets separated out into a series of planes; foreground, middle ground, and background seem pasted together almost on purpose, lending everything in the film a sense of unsettled construction that dovetails the narrative’s twists and turns.

Every Thing Will Be Fine is in a very real sense thematically quaint, and too often the screenplay is spectacularly verbally maladroit, not to mention vague. "Neither of us is fine … we want different things in life … I just want to write … " is the sort of thing the performers have to work with for the first half of the movie. As irritating as the commonplaces are, and as distractingly bad as the dialogue gets, glints and glimmers of perception and feeling find their way out from the 3D frame.
