Paradise: Faith review

Ulrich Seidl’s second film of the Paradise trilogy

She prays, flagellates and takes time off work to try and convert immigrants, but her faith is tested when her wheelchair-bound husband Nabil (Nabil Saleh) reappears after an absence of several years.

Both blackly comic and deadly serious, Faith balances visual austerity with turbulent emotions.

Laying bare his characters, Seidl uncovers the doubt beneath the armour of religious belief.
