Movie this Month: My Wonderful Wanda (2020) (In German, with subtitles)
Winner of awards, My Wonderful Wanda is a delightful satire of the haves and have-nots set against the backdrop of a gorgeous lakeside villa in Switzerland. At the story’s center is Wanda, a Polish caretaker who has left her own small children in Poland to look after Josef, the stroke-ridden patriarch of the wealth 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, along and with sporadic interventions 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, it is never less than a very human comedy. Filmed in Zurich, in German with Subtitles, also available on Prime.
