Austria | 2012 | col | dir. Ulrich Seidl, with Margarete Tiesel, Peter Kazungu, Inge Maux

The first film in Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise trilogy, Paradise: Love, offers a sombre proposition offset by radiant visuals. On the beaches of Kenya they’re known as “Sugar Mamas” – European women who seek out African boys selling love to earn a living. Teresa, a 50-year-old Austrian and mother of a daughter entering puberty, travels to this vacation paradise. She goes from one beach boy to the next, from one disappointment to the next and finally she must recognize: on the beaches of Kenya love is a business.
