Austria/Germany/France, 2008/2009, Dir. Jessica Hausner, 99min, French with English subtitles, digital proj.
Wheelchair-bound Christine makes a pilgrimage to Lourdes and experiences a sudden recovery.
How would we honestly react if we witnessed a miracle?
That’s the question on Austrian writer-director Hausner’s lips as she casts a deeply ironic eye over the ties between commercialism and spiritual healing in this brilliant francophone movie.
