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.

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 ›
