The Paradise Suite :- Watch The Paradise Suite on YoutubeonFire, “Crash”-like levels of moralizing contrivance bring together characters neatly divided by class, nationality and economics in “The Paradise Suite.” Joost van Ginkel’s second feature (after the promising 2011 “170 Hz,” about two deaf-mute lovers on the run) is a well-intentioned but heavy-handed, diagrammatic snapshot of current Europe, its characters too rigidly defined as exploiting or exploited to have much depth despite their often highly (when not overly) dramatic circumstances. Already selected as the Netherlands’ foreign-language film Oscar entry, the pic will doubtless log considerable fest travel and decent niche sales on the basis of its general political relevancy, polish and strong performances. But critical support will be uneven for a film that too often feels like an uninspired, case-pleading replay of similar recent globe-trotting crisscrossers. In Bulgaria, aspiring model Jenya (Anjela Nedyalkova) and her mother (Petia Silianova) are thrilled when the former gets a ticket out of their depressing environs via a contracted photo shoot in Amsterdam. Upon arrival, however, the young woman and two more like her are promptly beaten, raped, and forced into prostitution by escaped Serbian war criminal Ivica (Boris Isakovic) and his goons. In her plight she eventually crosses paths with saintly African guest worker Yaya (Issaka Sawadogo), who’s likewise strayed into criminality trying to help other exploited Third World refugees like himself. The Paradise Suite is a story about six people finding each other and, sometimes with just one glance, influencing each other’s lives irreversibly.
