Storyline

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.

No woman ... don't cry
27 March 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Hopefully this summary line is not missunderstood, but here we go with what I mean, if you're interested -> don't cry, but rather act. As far as women movements go and oppression of women, there are a lot of stories that can be told (unfortunately, but let's hope we move forward and people will look at this and other movies and question a lot of things).

This is just one of them and as one other reviewer wrote, he/she felt reminded about another movement closer to the reviewers heart. Which makes sense and is what the movie aims to do. While the characters in the movie are divided and it may feel like a fight, the movie itself is rather uniting us the viewers. At least those who understand the message of course and don't feel differently. Having said that, the story is really engaging and it moves with an impeccable pace overall. More than decent and well done
