The final installment in Ulrich Seidl's Paradise trilogy, 'Paradise: Hope' tells the story of overweight thirteen-year-old Melanie and her first love. While her mother travels to Kenya ('Paradise: Love') and her aunt does missionary work ('Paradise: Faith'), Melanie spends her summer vacation at a strict diet camp for overweight adolescents. Between physical education and nutrition counseling, pillow fights and her first cigarette, Melanie falls in love with the camp director, a doctor forty years her senior. As the doctor struggles with the guilty nature of his desire, Melanie had imagined her paradise differently. Written by Anonymous

Someone did not like my first review.
19 March 2014 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

We find out that Anna Maria has a niece and that she is a daughter of the women sex vacationing in Kenya. So trilogy starts to make sense.

Girls in their teens. The fat once. Fighting with pillows and talking about sex. But then the hairy Guy comes to train them and teach them how to try to loose fat. ;) I think that sending girls to the village is an idiotic thing, but girls who escaped, and went to a night club, dancing girls really gives us HOPE! I find this film weaker link of the other two. Especially the second one. Faith. Glaube. So powerful, that this one looks weaker. But it should not be underestimated. It should be watched together with other two. Very powerful trilogy!
