In a small town of Swiss, A young housewife organizes the women of her town to petition for right to vote.


One of the greatest complexities of federal historiography in Switzerland is that the right to vote for women was only introduced in a vote in 1971 after it had already been rejected in 1959 by the exclusively male voters. In the constituency of Appenzell Innerrhoden, the right to vote for women was only enforced at the cantonal level in 1990 against the majority will of male voters.


Story is happening in the year of 1971 in a small town in Swiss. Nora (Marie Neuenberger) and Hans (Max Simonischeck) a married couple living a complex relationship. Hans, is a carpenter brings the money home loves and respect his wife, while his wife Nora takes care of housework and childcare but she wants to go out for work. When Nora wants to apply for a job in the travel agency in the nearby town, Hans refuses to give his consent. The legislation at the time restricted that the husband had to give his consent, and what should the neighbors think when the wife of the newly promoted carpenter went to work? The story slowly taken into pace, where Nora starts to raise her voice along with her follow women's for the right to vote. What happens next is the remaining flick.

Nora - While doing campaign for right to vote for women

The director has created the film as a slightly harmless comedy, which works with a fairly moderate fighting spirit, remains manageable in plot structure and seems to be freed of all bitter substances through a retro cloak. Movie is frenetic and shown the importance of equality in a humor type genre.

Overall, one time watchable.
