THE DIVINE ORDER
DIE GÖTTLICHE ORDNUNG
2017, 96 min, Switzerland, Dir: Petra Volpe

Despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, Swiss women were still denied the right to vote in 1970. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger) is forbidden by her husband (Maximilian Simonischek) to take a part-time job, her frustration leads her to stand up not only for herself but for her fellow women as well, and she inadvertently becomes the poster child for her town’s suffragette movement. Although her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats and the potential end to her marriage, Nora refuses to back down, eventually convincing the women in her village to go on strike - and making some startling discoveries about her own liberation in the process. Supported by a strong ensemble cast and by cinematographer Judith Kaufmann's captivating visuals, writer-director Volpe’s period drama is an inspirational and timely tale about everyday people demanding their right to an equal voice. Switzerland’s official submission for the Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar.
