Incredibly engaging.

I assume that the characters in "The Divine Order" were not based on real people, as the filmmakers surely would have indicated this was the case. However, it doesn't matter too much, as the story is based on women's push for suffrage in Switzerland...the last of the industrialized nations to grant this freedom. The film is set in a small town in Switzerland in 1971. Women's rights are pretty much unknown to this part of the world and folks just seem to accept that it's God's plan for men to be in charge. However, slowly two women manage to convince the rest of the ladies in town that their cause is just...but they really need to convince the men since they are the ones who need to vote in favor of this. While this story could have come off as angry or anti-male, it's really not...but more about just giving the women an even break. It also accentuates how beneficial this could be for the men...without being preachy. Well worth seeing and very well written, acted and directed.

A great Swiss film on Switzerland and their culture

I saw yesterday (Friday, 15 Dec 2017) in a cinema in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) the Swiss Film "Die Goettliche Ordnung" here named "Mulheres Divinas" (somewhat like "Holly Women", an awkward title for a great film). The film is spoken in Swiss German with subtitles in Portuguese. Once I did live very happily in Switzerland from 1986 to 1992 (a period quite close to the facts presented in the film) and since I even did learn and I actually do speak Swiss German due to my great integration into the Swiss way-of-life, the film touched deeply - really very deeply - my inner feelings (and I am a married man). Perhaps foreigners might not grasp all the subtle details on Switzerland, but the film conveys a lot of information on the country and their culture. "Schampar Guet", as I would say in Swiss German! Highly recommended.

The Divine Order is a divine movie

I just came from seeing this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival. What a treat. I wanted to see it because it seemed incredible that the Swiss did not grant women the right to vote until the 1970's. How could such a country be so backward on women/human rights. Women were not allowed to vote, open their own bank accounts, or take a job without the permission of their husbands. Amazing! The acting was so natural and the cause so relevant today when women's rights are still under attack. One of the best movies with a message that I have seen in a long time. Brought back many memories I had of the women's movement in the U.S. in the 70's. Wonderful talk back after the movie with the director and some of the actresses.
