Des Töchterleins Leid

Switzerland 2024
produced by
Juval Marlon for Beheading Films
directed by Juval Marlon
starring Jörg Wischnauski, Violetta Sangue, Günther Brandl, René Wiesner
written by Juval Marlon, music by Timo L. Klein, Juval Marlon

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Father (Jörg Wischnauski) and daughter (Violetta Sangue) haven't seen each other in years, and he has actually never been there for her, forcing her to forge her own way, but it was their deceased wife/mother's last wish that they would reconcile. So they decide on a weekend vacation in the mountains to rekindle their relationship - which is easier said than done, as dad has difficulties coming to terms with the fact that his daughter has become a prostitute - and willingly, too - while the daughter finds her dad's writings on male sexuality rather out-of-date. Enter a hunter (Günther Brandl) who has lost his way and he asks for abode - and rather unexpectedly he lifts the spirits of both father and daughter when they sit together in the evening for a few drinks. The next day, all three of them agree to go on a hike, but when the daughter trips over and asks for a break, the men just leave her behind. This evening, the atmosphere between the three is rather tense, and it doesn't get any better when dad tells the hunter his daughter's a prostitute. The hunter offers the daughter money for a night with him, and after she turns him down, he decides to take what he wants, and maybe more - and that her dad is in the room with them doesn't deter him one bit ...

 

Des Töchterleins Leid is certainly not an easy film to stomach, and on one hand that's because at least some of the violence in the rape scene in the finale is absolutely real - and even though things only got real upon actress Violetta Sangue's express request - do watch the short Emanzipation und Müssiggang regarding the backgrounds concerning this decision -, that scene is still anything but an easy watch. But what's really disturbing about the film is its depiction of toxic masculinity, which is portrayed in such an unemotional way it's only all the more shocking. Now this all might not make this movie a crowdpleaser, but it's certainly a film that will stay with you for quite a few days after watching - not only because of its shock value but because it's also really well-made and intelligently told - and that will have you thinking for sure.
