Fifth about The Seventh

The Divine Order (Die Göttliche Ordnung)

The Divine Order: the story told by Petra Volpe is certainly an important one (and, considering the location and time period, somewhat surprising). The film, however competent it may be, is a very conventional, riskless one, starting from the character gallery, that checks all the expected boxes for a film such as this. The film looks polished and clean: from the period costumes and coiffures to the art direction and location looks; likewise, the soundtrack presents a few good and well-chosen songs, but the fact that they are all very recognizable reduces the local flavor of the film. The cast is fine but not memorable: Marie Leuenberger, as the main character, does a decent job.
