The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
Austria, France, Germany | 2012 | Ulrich Seidl
The most uncompromising, uncomfortable, and unforgettable (i.e., best) film we saw at this year’s Cleveland Int’l Film Festival was the second part of Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise trilogy. (All three films stand alone.) Paradise: Faith follows a fanatically religious Austrian Catholic woman whose extreme devotion frequently crosses the line into comedy or cruelty. To reveal more would spoil the film’s shocks and surprises. But this darkly funny, sometimes harrowing drama has virtuosic scenes that will make you wince, and incidents and images that will stick with you for years.
