Synopsis

Christine is a lonely, almost entirely handicapped woman who goes on a life-changing journey to Lourdes, the iconic site of pilgrimage in the Pyrenees Mountains. Not that she believes in miracles—it just happens to be the only way to get out and about.

Our take

Jessica Hausner’s film on the complexity of Christian faith casts a mysterious spell with its tale of a handicapped woman (a lovely Sylvie Testud) making a pilgrimage in the hope of something miraculous. The grave story is lent wry and surprising twists of tone, mixing sincerity, humor and suspense.
