It’s miserable to be a teen. Kids between the ages of 13 and 19 have more energy than they will likely have when they get older, but their brains are not fully developed and, as neurologists tell us, people are not capable of making entirely ethical choices until that development comes at about the age of twenty-five. “Paradise: Hope,” the  [ Read More ]

Film Review: 'Paradise: Hope'

6 August 2013 4:24 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Bringing Austrian director Ulrich Seidl's painfully naturalistic Paradise trilogy to a somewhat dismal dénouement, Paradise: Hope (Paradies: Hoffnung, 2013) sees Melanie (Melanie Lenz) - daughter of Love lead Teresa - packed off to fat camp to shed some excess pounds.

Far weaker than the two previous chapters, Hope gropes hopelessly for provocation, but instead finds only tedious, highfalutin banality.

With her mother off holidaying as a sex tourist on the Kenyan coast, Melanie leaves the deeply religious environs of her missionary auntie Anna Marie's house (see Paradise: Faith) for a teenage diet camp situated on the outskirts of an unnamed Austrian town.
