The likeable cast, and an empathetic central performance from Marie Leuenberger, carry this crowd-pleasing film that delivers a rousing account of the Swiss women's suffrage movement.

"Deeply researched, and the production design is astonishing ... even the cinematography seems to come from the period ... while there is gentle humour, and triumph, nothing is overplayed ... Its dignity and reserve are inseparable."

"A conventional but exceptionally warm crowd-pleaser of a movie, mostly thanks to Leuenberger's performance."

"Petra Biondina Volpe skillfully balances the personal and political in a spirited, rousing chronicle of Switzerland's women's suffrage movement, filtered through the experiences of a handful of locals."
