FilmBath presents The Divine Order / Die göttliche Ordnung.
This year the UK celebrates the 100th anniversary of (some) women securing the right to vote. But in deeply conservative Switzerland, the fight for universal suffrage is a much more recent one: until 1971, women still could not vote in federal elections; fully equal voting rights were adopted only in 1990. Petra Volpe‘s comedy charts the beginning of the struggle, as initially placid housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger) starts to question the status quo and rallies the women of her village to demand their rights as human beings. ‘The excellent ensemble deliver a genuine sense of sisterhood’ (Total Film), while Leuenberger’s nuanced performance won her Best Actress (International) at Tribeca 2017.
