Jessica Hausner's (Lovely Rita, Hotel) third feature tells the story of a pilgrimage to Lourdes. Among the pilgrims are sufferers of various illnesses as well as others in good health. They undertake the journey in hope of finding spiritual comfort or bodily cure.
Sylvie Testud (La Vie en Rose) takes the central role of Christine, a multiple sclerosis sufferer and religious sceptic, who travels more for companionship than in hope of a miracle. But as the trip develops, her lack of faith is tested with the hope of a new life, whilst, around her, the affectations and jealousies of the assorted entourage of religious officials and fellow sufferers are being exposed.
