About the Movie
In this second installment, Ulrich Seidl explores what it means to carry the cross. For Anna Maria, a single woman in her 50s (and sister of PARADISE: LOVE’s Teresa), paradise lies with Jesus. She devotes her summer vacation to doing missionary work, so that Austria may be brought back to the path of virtue. On her daily pilgrimage through Vienna, she goes from door to door, carrying a foot-high statue of the Virgin Mary. When her husband, an Egyptian Muslim confined to a wheelchair, comes home after years of absence, her life is turned upside down. FAITH recounts the stations of the cross of a marriage and the longing for love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Like it or not, "Paradise: Faith" sticks in your head.
Fresh: Ulrich Seidl is back on home turf in Austria with Paradise: Faith, but no less willing to challenge auds with startling imagery, ambiguous morality and ruthless black humor.
Rotten: With little room to feel for or even understand Anna Maria, "Paradise: Faith" rarely seems more than high art with low intentions.
Fresh: Hofstatter's performance comes off as an unselfconscious tour de force, painfully real and culturally lost.
