Nominated for the Golden Lion and winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at Venice Film Festival 2009. Jessica Hausner's ('Amour Fou', 'Lovely Rita') third feature, 'Lourdes', follows a pack of religious believers on a pilgrimage to Lourdes; a Christian shrine and source of alleged 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. ★★★★ "A quietly powerful and moving exploration of men and women waiting for transformations" - Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph ★★★★ "Like Haneke, Hausner is more comfortable opening a debate than closing it" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out ★★★★ "Subtle, mysterious and brilliant" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
