Starring Maria Hofstatter, Nabil Saleh, 113mins The second part of Ulrich Seidl's Paradise trilogy examines and slyly mocks the faith of a devout, self-righteous and literally self-flagellating Catholic woman while she proselytises to immigrants and is abused by her paraplegic Muslim husband. It isn't much fun.
