Format: DVD
The title hints at a documentary structure,Lourdes is the French town at the base of the Pyrennes,synonymous with the notion of miraculous cures. This movie was shot in Lourdes, with the agreement of Church authorities.The film is subtly hedging its agnostic bets,beautifully filmed and composed with long-shot or side-angled photography. Testud as Christine,a young qudraplegic woman with MS,who is wheel-chair bound and comes as a `pilgrim'to Lourdes. She can't see why she's been afflicted and wants more from life, to be like `normal' people.Jessica Hausner, an Austrian film-maker,wanted not to mock the idea of spiritual comfort or bodily repair,she wanted to do a test-case healing,but with such precision and sardonic wit,that the repercussions,envy,insight into the pilgrims' minds, the fall-out,of the miracle that is not, are superbly rendered.The attitudes of other pilgrims to Christine after her healing are wonderfully depicted,why her and not me? There is a Greek chorus in the two fellow pilgrims,garrulous fraus,Huber and Spor.Also we get the concurrent life of the Order of Malta volunteers,whose lack of piety and flirting with each other,mirror in some way Christine's low-key response to a miracle cure.Has she merely won on the lottery to find out her ticket has the wrong numbers?Is she a higher form of traveler in a ghastly cultural/ spiritual package tour?Christine seems to compete with Maria,a volunteer for the attentions of Kuno,an older man Order helper.We get a reflection of different degrees of spirituality:some like Cecille who overdo it,a stickler for religious protocol and religious respect,doesn't believe in miracles, collapses.Frau Hartl is too serious.Read more ›

This film fails in two ways. First it fails as a work of art. Or, to put it bluntly, it is a lousy movie. The direction and the acting are stilted, the characters are undeveloped, and the plot leads nowhere--neither to an epiphany nor to a disillusionment. Second, it fails as a depiction of a pilgrimage to Lourdes. I have been on such a pilgrimage with the group represented in the film, and real life is nothing like the movie. In the film the focus is on "getting" a miracle; in real life it is on putting oneself in the presence of God and taking what he sends. The idea of a prize for the best "malade" is absurd. In real life the pilgrims and their helpers are usually laughing when they are not actually in prayer; in the film they are silent, glum, and occasionally pretending to be pious. In real life Lourdes is full of real human connections; in the first all are isolated. In real life there is some happy flirting at Lourdes; in the film there is only dutiful, predatory lechery. So this film tells you nothing about what a trip to Lourdes is like today. If it were a good movie otherwise that might not matter very much. But it is not.

I bought a copy of this movie after seeing it on a DVD that the local library had.
Though I don't collect movies, this is one to watch again sometime soon because the story is so promising and intriguing. From a place of possibility, Lourdes offers hope in a time when we can certainly use it.
