The Divine Order (Die Göttliche Ordnung)



2017 | P13 | 94 mins | Comedy, Drama


Nora is a young housewife and mother, living in a quaint little village with her husband and their two sons. The Swiss countryside is untouched by the major social upheavals the social movements of 1968 have brought about in the cities. Nora’s life is similarly unaffected; she is a quiet person who is liked by everybody, until she starts to publicly fight for women’s suffrage, which the men are due to vote on in a ballot on February 7, 1971.
