Die Geißel des Fleisches #

Released 5/27/1965

Description: Those who think that in the 60's Austrian cinema only produced cheap comedies and Heimatfilms, better watch this film: an outrageous, wonderfully politically incorrect, exploitive and bizarre shocker, a true curiosity made by triviality director Eddy Saller (his first). It concerns a boy who kills girls because, as his lawyer says, he was not loved by his mother and in his puberty he was dismissed by women as sexually unattractive; in short: it all broke the terrible man's heart. And when ever he meets too inviting girls now, showing their attractions, well, you see, it is the urge then, he just cannot control himself; it is, as the game says, the torment of the flesh.

Paradies: Hoffnung Reviews:

Austrian screenwriter, producer and director Ulrich Seidl's fifth detail movie which he co-wrote with screenwriter Veronika Franz and co-produced, is the last part of his partly theological Paradise trilogy which was preceded by "Paradise: Love" (2012) and Paradise: Faith" (2012). It premiered In tournament at the 63rd Berlin International Movie Festival in 2013, was shot on zone in Austria and is a Austria-Germany-France co-production which was produced by producers Philippe Bober and Christine Ruppert. It says the storyline about a 13-year-old woman called Melanie who whilst her mother called Teresa is on holiday in Kenya is taken to a diet camp by her aunt called Anna Maria where she befriends a woman called Verena and takes a liking to a doctor.Precisely and statically directed by European filmmaker Ulrich Seidl, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the main character's mission of view, draws a heartrending portrayal of a girl's experiences whilst participating in a residential program. While notable for its naturalistic milieu depictions, distinct production design by production designers Andreas Donhauser and Renate Martin, cinematography by American cinematographer Edward Lachman and Austrian cinematographer Wolfgang Thaler and test of colors, this somewhat character-driven and dialog-driven storyline about friendship and hope depicts a mindful study of hero where the rare humor occurs as a effect of the at times rhythmic and subtle continuity.This humane, involving and somewhat surreal sequel which is set mostly at a weight loss resort in Austria and where an adolescent woman starts looking for the same thing that her mother is looking for in Kenya, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial hero development, colourful characters, sparse dialog and the reverent and commendable acting performances by actress Melanie Lenz in her debut detail movie role, Austrian actor Joseph Lorenz and actress Verena Lehbauer. A minimalistic, characteristic, sociological and atypical coming-of-age drama where Ulrich Seidl's dystopic universe which may not be for all tastes and where he has gone to the extremities of humanity with a bittersweet, realistic and somewhat bleak though far from melancholic mission of view comes to an end.


The third and final film of the 'Paradise' trilogy which sets in the summer holiday. Just like the previous two films this one happens to the parallel timeline but in various territories with various theme and people. The film which unfolds the storyline of 'Hope' of a teen woman and her summer holiday at weight loss camp. She was left there by her aunt and before that by her mother in her aunt's house. So all the three films were interconnected by the characters from one family. And this, the last film of the trilogy briefs the teenagers problems especially the fat ones and their perspective.The 13 year old Melanie was sent to the weight loss camp in her summer vacation as per the agreement from her mother. As she joins the others from the camp her innocence seemed to be gone. Unexpectedly she undergoes her first love experience and expects to lose her virginity. On the another side of the story, the mates hangout and partying at late night puts further problem to her relationship with whom she considered her boyfriend.This final episode of the trilogy portrayed from a girl's angle which definitely stands as the game promised. The director again did not hesitate to give his fresh and experimental approach to the issues faced by the folks in the contemporary world. His bold attempt is what gave us the three spectacular films which deals on the various contents and characters. Definitely such films are not made to create money. But to present the folks from various parts of the globe about the direction of travelling fresh culture over the old. These films are not for entertainment, if you are aware what you watching and what's the purpose of it then you won't be a disappoint much. Like I told three movies, three various locations, three various folks and for three various audiences (unless you are a film buff who watch all the three).


Ulirch Seidl's 'Paradise' trilogy focuses on female unhappiness: the first two films were almost unwatchably painful, as they charted their protagonists' unfortunate plights and self-harming behaviour. The third movie is not quite so gloomy, although its game 'Hope' is almost certainly meant ironically, but there is hope here, if only because it's younger characters still have the possibility to turn around their lives. Equally, the film's purpose seems a tiny less clear than its predecessors: some overweight, but basically normal teenagers attend a weight-loss camp, where they face a measure of abuse from the adults who run it. The most poignant moment in the movie comes when the lead character, the daughter of the protagonist in the first film, desperately calls her mother (who we know to be trapped in her own form of hell), a sign of a human bond that has hitherto not been revealed. Overall, it's still difficult to know what to create of the trilogy, except as a series of observations on quite how difficult it is to create meaningful connections with those around us.
