Directed by Jessica Hausner
Christine is a wheelchair-using woman with severeÂ multiple sclerosis. In order to escape her isolation, she makes a journey toÂ Lourdes, the iconic site of pilgrimage in the PyreneesÂ Mountains, along with other people with varying disabilities. During her stay she begins to regain the use of her limbs. This is in contrast with others, who appear to have stronger faith than Christine but experience only slight, passing improvement. Her fellow pilgrims are eager to call it aÂ miracle; however, as the pilgrimage draws to a close, exactly how accurate a claim this is becomes uncertain.
"Jessica Hausner, an Austrian working here in French, wants to explore the mysteries of life, not its certainties." New York Times
"Lourdes ultimately eschews rigorous religious inquiry to study the mechanics of envy and frustrated desire." Village Voice
