Winner of the Venice FIPRESCI prize, Jessica Hausner’s third feature follows a group of religious believers on a pilgrimage to Lourdes, the iconic Christian shrine in the Pyrenees famed for its apparent miraculous cures.
This poignant and intelligent film circles beautifully around the subject of miracles and faith, giving equal time to both skepticism and wonder. Crisply composed and exacting in its aesthetic - the framing is sublime, as is the use of music - the film also delights in small, surprising details, such as the sisters flirting and giggling with volunteer officers.
