“Deeply researched, and the production design is astonishing ... even the cinematography seems to come from the period ... while there is gentle humour, and triumph, nothing is overplayed ... Its dignity and reserve are inseparable.”

ABC Radio

“We know the ending - Switzerland gave women the vote, becoming one of the last European countries to do so - but this is a warm telling of a neglected story.”
