Gilette Barbier in Lourdes


2009 NR

Confined to a wheelchair for most of her life, lonely Christine (Sylvie Testud) devises a plan to change her circumstances by journeying to Lourdes, the small town in the foothills of the Pyrenees, where many flock to be healed. The journey yields startling results for our isolated hero in director Jessica Hausner's Austrian drama, an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival.
