An den Stränden Kenias kennt man sie als Sugarmamas: Europäische Frauen, denen junge schwarze Beachboys Liebesdienste bieten, um so ihren Lebensunterhalt zu finanzieren. Teresa, 50-jährige Wienerin und Mutter einer pubertierenden Tochter, reist als Sextouristin in das Urlaubsparadies, um die Liebe zu finden. Sie wechselt von einem Beachboy zum nächsten, von einer Enttäuschung zur anderen. Die Liebe am Strand von Kenia ist ein Geschäft.
'PARADIES: Liebe' erzählt bildmächtig, bewegend und immer wieder komödiantisch von Sextourismus, von älteren Frauen und jungen Männern, vom Marktwert der Sexualität, von der Macht der Hautfarbe, von Europa und Afrika und von Ausgebeuteten, denen nichts übrig bleibt als andere Ausgebeutete auszubeuten.
Ulrich Seidls Film ist Auftakt zu einer Trilogie, die von drei Frauen einer Familie erzählt, die jede für sich ihren Urlaub verbringt: als Sextouristin, als missionierende Katholikin ('PARADIES: Glaube') und als Teenager in einem Diätcamp ('PARADIES: Hoffnung'). Drei Filme, drei Frauen, drei Sehnsuchtsgeschichten. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition DVD.

Changement d'actrices...ce n'est plus Charlotte Rampling mais Margarete Tiesel.
Même thème : des femmes vieillissantes qui vont chercher leurs dernières émotions et
perdre leurs dernières illusions dans les bras de jeunes et beaux mâles...
Le film est très dur même si Ulrich Seidl le pimente d'un certain humour mais un humour qui fait grincer les dents plus qu'une franche rigolade...
C'est un film qui dérange non par le fait que quelques quinquagénaires veulent se payer du bon temps même si elles doivent payer...mais la solitude, la détresse et la fin des illusions qui en découlent...
Dans ce cas on pourrait dire que "la chair est triste" pour ces femmes même si les corps des mâles sont beaux...car que leur reste-t'il après une nuit d'amour ? La même solitude, la même frustration et la même tristesse de toute une existence.
C'est un film qui dérange car c'est un film qui fait réfléchir...car à un certain moment de la vie il faut accepter la réalité et arrêter de rêver...
Grand film, grand réalisateur et grande actrice. A voir, à découvrir et à revoir...
Un 10/10 absolu.
Je vous Le recommande . ;)

"Paradise: Love" is Teresa's quest. At first, she is merely curious, intrigued and somewhat excited about the adventures her friends have experienced. She seems reticent to move forward, but succumbs to the advances of the first young man who catches her fancy. The brusque and business-like transaction doesn't appeal to Teresa who needs the illusion of love and intimacy as opposed to just physical contact. When she meets a young man who seems to understand her and like her, she gives herself to the experience. Is she naive to think bliss and happiness, however fleeting, are in the cards? Of course, these lonely white women from around the globe fuel much of the local economy so it costs to play in this realm. That is something that Teresa will have to come to terms with in a series of increasingly uncomfortable situations. The movie is really about the evolution of Teresa as the unpleasant realities of this world don't jibe with the romanticized notion she had of this vacation. Laid bare (literally and symbolically), Teresa is soon stripped of any illusions.
"Paradise: Love," by design, is not a film that will appeal to all audiences. It's a small movie with little plot, just a series of random encounters. It is filled with overt and sometimes unpleasant sexuality. If you shy away from explicitness or nudity, this is not the film for you. There is frequent full frontal nudity (male and female) and some of the sequences (the stripper, for example) push the boundaries of what you might have seen dramatized in other films. This is occasionally shocking, and always in your face with its frankness. What is depicted is neither paradise, nor love, and so the title feels deeply ironic. But led by a great Margarete Tiesel, we see into the soul of our protagonist. It is bold and uncompromising. As we so rarely see those of an advanced age sexualized, it brought to mind the wonderful British film "The Mother" (with an absolutely fantastic Anne Reid and Daniel Craig). Once again, "Paradise: Love" is not lightweight or frothy entertainment. It has the power to provoke and disturb. That is both its greatest strength and what will turn some people off. KGHarris, 7/13.
This movie examines the morphing of Teresa from a prudish Austrian tourist to a woman who opens up to her sensuality with the young African men she takes to bed. It also shows her increasing knowledge of the psychological and fiscal cost of these encounters. Her 'lovers' want money for different things: their sick nephews, their ill fathers, etc. She realizes at one point that she is being used and lied to and gets furious with the man, berating and even physically battering him.
This is a hard movie to watch. As Teresa becomes aware of the real cost of fulfilling her sexuality, she goes through stages and then partakes of what is expected in this culture of self-fulfillment. There is much frontal nudity which may be difficult for some people to watch. There are also many painful emotional scenes that make this movie dark and despairing. I found that the title hinted at what Teresa hoped for but never did find. I liked the movie but cringed a lot throughout it. It is not a movie for everyone. The plot is not action filled but is slow and filled with a deep nod to Teresa's experiences. Overall, it is a fine movie that left me emotionally spent. The movie is originally in German and has sub-titles.
I'll try---first off, the lead actress is amazing! Not only her fearlessness in showing her body but also in showing the full range of her emotions. Mostly, what she impressed me with was her innocence. The other Austrian tourists she met were more or less jaded in their expectations of getting sex for money from these African young men. This woman, our heroine, was actually looking for love. It amazed me how many times she tried, again and again, to find love with these fellows who were clearly doing what they were doing for money. I was also amazed at her naive, but genuine sweetness, as when she met the young "sister" of her first lover and the school children. I also have to give her credit for her dancing...she managed some great moves, there.
What emerged for me, was a picture of a genuinely sweet, but muddled middle class, middle-aged Austrian woman, who could have been any woman from any Western country, as she looked for love. The opening scene shows her at her job which is as a teacher of developmentally disabled adults. She clearly has a big heart. She's not married, her teenage daughter would rather talk on the phone than to her, there is no man in sight, she is rather obsessive about cleanliness. She thinks she is old and fat but she'd really like to believe that she is still desirable. It's all so terribly typical of a lot of women....maybe men, too.
Besides the bald picture of the game of prostitution and mutual exploitation, there is this unexpected beauty that the film shows. The beach at Kenya is gorgeous although studded with men waiting to sell themselves to the female tourists. What struck me was the unexpected beauty of the tiny homes of the African men....especially that of "Mumba," her first "boyfriend," His room, although very humble was quite beautiful. I loved the prints of the fabrics, the colors of the walls, the sheer lavender net that fell over the bed/ Was this for mosquitoes? Maybe...but when he unfolded it and she lay in it, the scene was quite beautiful. Rodin would have loved her! The scene of Mumba, stretched out, nude, on the bed, was quite splendid, too. She recorded this with her cell phone which was terrible funny and just, terrible, But at the same time, he was so beautiful, that you couldn't blame her.
I think it is this position of the film maker -- of objectivity---non-judgement as he showed what the poor Black African men did and what the middle class White Austrian women did that give this film it's value. He doesn't spare us any of the details but even the most bald nude scenes are shown with such honesty that I found it all quite amazing. Obviously every viewer will see this differently, some with moral judgment, some with shock, some with sociological tsk-tsk-ing. For me, it's just quite amazing. I am reminded of a line from a Tennessee Williams play, that "nothing human is disgusting." I look forward to seeing the rest of this film maker's Paradise trilogy.
Teresa is an Austrian, middle-aged woman who goes to a resort in Kenya to spend a vacation. There she meets other Austrian women like her: unfit, with low self-esteem and hungry for love. Teresa starts meeting local men who "love" her for who she really is, and this is when we really start knowing everybody for who they really are.
At times funny, at times sad, this film makes you ponder about the emotional poverty of some people and the economic poverty of some other. When both of these kinds of poverties meet, rather than complement each other, they leave you feeling more void and poor of what you thought you originally were.
This movie has been compared to "Heading South", but while both films are about sex tourism ("Heading South" is set in Haiti), their plots are different. I am looking forward to watching Paradies: Faith and Paradise: Hope.
