[WANDA, MEIN WUNDER]


Winner of awards at the 2020 Tribeca and Vancouver film festivals, MY WONDERFUL WANDA is a delightful satire of the haves and the have-nots, set against the backdrop of a gorgeous lakeside villa in Switzerland. At the story's center is Wanda (Agnieszka Grochowska), a Polish caretaker who has left her own small children in Poland to look after Josef (André Jung), the stroke-ridden patriarch of the wealthy Wegmeister-Gloor dynasty. Wanda is adept in navigating the tricky family dynamics between the two grown (if still childish) offspring and the elegant if controlling matriarch Elsa (an amazing Marthe Keller), along with the sporadic intervention of animals stuffed or alive. But an unexpected turn of events turns everything upside down. While MY WONDERFUL WANDA exposes present-day realities of class injustice, thanks to writer-director Bettina Oberli's empathetic lens, it is never less than a very human comedy. Winner, Audience Award, Best Narrative, 2020 Vancouver International Film Festival; Winner, Special Mention, Nora Ephron Prize, 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.
