All The Places Story
Gabriela ‘Gabo’ (Ana Serradilla) and Fernando Medina (Mauricio Ochmann) are two siblings who meet after years at their father’s funeral, who was always hard on them. He was already a stern parent before their mother passed away.
While Gabo remained with the family, Fernando uprooted to pursue a job in Singapore. They haven't spoken to each other in years. After years apart, the friends reunite to fulfill a road trip vow made when they were young.
Fernando has convinced Gabo to carry on this voyage on their rusty bikes despite the fact that they are decades late. The trip provides the two with memorable encounters and enlightening insights into one another that will forever alter the trajectory of their relationship. Will they be able to overcome their fears and make the decisions they know they need to make?
All The Places Review in Detail
There are so many nuances to relationships between siblings. You may feel strongly one way or the other about them, but ignoring them is next to impossible. Beginning with the tragedy of losing a loved one and progressing to self-discovery and ultimate fulfillment, All the Places is another tale of siblings, love, and forgiveness.
But there are many obstacles on the road to bliss in All the Places, including lengthy conversations that provide background on Gabriela and Fer. Thankfully, the action begins promptly and requires little persuasion on your part & you are thrust deeper into their lives.
The film aims for a lighthearted look at the lives of two estranged siblings. As might be expected in a movie of this genre, they overcome their differences and talk things out. The movie has a highly handy atmosphere, with everything happening quickly & unexpectedly.
On the other hand, it's a lighthearted flick that might let you forget your troubles for a while. The comedy is also quite weak, with few truly memorable moments. I mean, there's this one scene where the man Gabriela has a crush on pulls out a glass ball and acts all wacky with it like he's having an orgasm.
The first time I saw it in another film, I laughed, but now it simply makes me cringe. Emotional conversations between the siblings are endearing to watch, and as we find out more about them, we can't help but feel invested in their bond.
Their conversations tend to be sweet and, at times, deeply moving. Neither an action flick nor a full-fledged drama, the film lacks the necessary “oomph” to truly engage its audience. It's not either completely left or completely right, which might make it feel strange and a little confused at times.
But the cinematography in All the Places is amazing, making Gabriela and Fernando's journeys seem like something out of a fairy tale. It's hard to watch this family grow closer together and learn more about themselves when you're distracted by the picturesque mountains and charming cities that serve as a backdrop.
While the last moments of All the Places are heartwarming, they are also somewhat sudden. The climax is abruptly cut off, but the final scene is satisfying and gives you a reason to be optimistic about what the future holds. As a result, by the time the credits roll, you're not entirely sure how you feel about what was just shown.
