What Have We Done to Deserve This?

Womit haben wir das verdient?

EVA SPREITZHOFER
Austria, 2018
92 minutes, Color
Official website

Humorous and filled with quirky dialogue, director Eva Spreitzhofer and her brilliant ensemble cast manage to pull off a magnificently biting comedy about tolerance and the limits thereof. For Vienna resident Wanda, an adamant atheist and feminist, her worst nightmare has come true when her teenage daughter Nina converts to Islam, asks to be addressed as Fatima and announces her desire to wear a veil. To top it all off, her ex-husband has to pick this very moment to become a father again. Wanda's wonderful know-it-all world is turned upside-down and she longs for the days when her only problems were her daughter skipping school and smoking pot. What ensues is an amusing look in the mirror for a presumably enlightened, liberal patchwork family. —Various sources

In German with English subtitles
