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.
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.
