Lourdes 2009 ★★★★½

A remarkable performance from Testud carries this quiet, observant film. Director Hausner dwells in the realm of mystery, neither confirming nor denying the reality of the miraculous, and as such shows us how a place the faithful associate with hope can also become a place of profound uncertainty. Such uncertainty is disorienting, while the faith required to embrace the miraculous is shown to be quite the high calling indeed. Excellent film that provides much to think about.
