I saw this film at the Ghent filmfestival 2012. We were told that it
was the first of three related films, the two successors to be named
'Paradise: Faith' (already released), and 'Paradise: Hope' (to be
released in 2013). Quote from festival announcement: "On Kenya's
beaches they are known as 'sugar mamas': European women who seek out
African boys selling love to earn a living. Teresa, a 50-year-old
Austrian woman, travels to this vacation paradise. 'Paradise: Love'
tells of older women and young men, of Europe and Africa, and of the
exploited, who end up exploiting others."
The festival screening took place in a fully booked venue (225 seats).
More than half (very unusual) of the people stayed for the final Q&A
with the principal actor (Margarete Tiesel), and there were (also
unusual) many relevant questions. She admitted upfront that she had not
read the script prior to shooting (though she did after wards). She is
a professional actor, but the African boys are all amateurs.
What struck me the most when watching this film, is that the "boys"
never ask money for their "services" in a direct way. Rather they
always seem to have a family member in financial difficulties, badly in
need of financial support, medical bills being the most common story.
We see that happen on Terese's first trip outside the hotel, where her
"boy" takes her to his sister (not really, as we see later on), and
subsequently a school teacher. Each one has a sad story and needs
money. And when she does not cough up enough money, the boy refuses to
be touched anymore. On her second trip Teresa seems very aware of all
this, recognizing it as standard operating procedure. She starts
playing along without feeling awkward about it, and gradually appears
to have found her way in this "game".
In the final Q&A the subject "exploitation" came about several times,
apparently without easy answers. It is not exploitation per se, when
both sides look happy with the arrangement. She talked with several
other women there with ample experience in the matter. Some bought for
instance a motor bike for her African "lover", or even a house, and
travel a few times per year to the area. The "boys" speak one of the
usual European languages (English, German, etc); which one is dependent
on the area. Yet, while the story progresses, we nevertheless observe a
certain language barrier, several times causing misunderstandings about
All in all, this is a remarkable feature film bordering on a
documentary about sex tourism. We have heard about sex tourism in
Thailand, particularly for men. This time it is about women with money
to spend. The film clearly demonstrates to us how it works. What the
films shows is very explicit, even to the extent that we see Teresa
explaining to the "boy" how she prefers to be touched, and we closely
observe him learning which way works best for her. This scene marks the
duality of their respective roles, not parasitic but rather symbiotic.
Showing all this in a natural way, without too much embarrassment for
us viewers, is an achievement in itself. I scored a 5 (out of 5) for
the audience award when leaving the theater.
