Switzerland, 1971: Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband, their two sons and her father-in-law in a little village. Here, in the Swiss countryside, little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals that the movement of May 1968 has caused. Nora's life, too, has been unaffected; she is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone - until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women's right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971.
I was really looking forward to see this movie. I always support Swiss movies being from Switzerland myself. So i was excited to see it. Sadly it is really bad. The worst movie I've seen so far this year. Before I want to start I want to say that i'm not against the message of the movie. I'm reviewing it as a movie.
First of all not everything is bad in this movie. I liked the cinematography. The scenes in which the main character was riding a bike were very well filmed. Some shots were very nice. There was subtle imagery you could pick up. The set and the costume were nice too and there were some scenes that were funny. The narration at the beginning was also well done.
The film fails in every level when it comes to acting, writing and the characters. The main character was boring and uninteresting her journey was very predictable and poorly developed. Also the actress who played her did a very bad job. I haven't seen anything else from her so I can't tell if it was her fault or the directors fault. Some of the other characters were at least a bit entertaining. The old lady for example. The Antagonists were cartooney and unrealistic none of them had any motivation what so ever. The tone of the movie was also way off it didn't knew if it wanted be a comedy or a drama. The Swiss German that they were speaking was very forced and awkward. But by far the worst thing was the dialogue and the way it was delivered. The dialogue seemed like it had been written by a 10 Year old. The ending was also very cheesy and it could have been easily delivered just through visuals. But no they had to throw in narration so that everyone could get it. The movie overall was very boring and dull and there was no real conflict at all. The 90 minutes felt very long. The argument many critiques make is that it is good for a Swiss movie and you shouldn't compare it to an American production. If it was for budgetary reasons why this movie sucked i would understand that argument. But it worked on a technical level. You don't need to have a big budget for a good script you don't need to have money for good acting. There are many independent movies from other countries that are great even with a small budget.
I really wanted to like this movie but I couldn't. The acting and the dialogue was just poorly done. I really hope that the director is able to continue to make movies and make improvements. Because I could see that she is talented.
But overall the movie was disappointing and really awkward.
I would give this movie a 3/10
