Le miraculé : A Jean-Pierre Mocky film which attacks the hypocrisy of church.
13 August 2014 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Most people who have watched good films are aware of attacks which Luis Buñuel had continually launched in his long as well as illustrious career as a filmmaker on organized religion. Most of his films were poignant assaults on the dishonesty,hypocrisy and sham of Christian church.The veteran French actor/director Jean-Pierre Mocky shares the unique distinction of belonging to this important club but due to distribution problems, his films have remained somewhat less known than those of his Spanish counterpart. This is one key reason why "Le Miraculé" must with watched with a lot of attention as Monsieur Mocky provides viewers with a completely different perspective of exposing the hypocrisy of Christian church. He has shot his film as a "Train movie" in order to describe a hilarious journey undertaken by oddball characters who travel from Paris until Lourdes to witness a miracle. The trouble is that the journey does not appear as an ordinary journey as most characters seem to lose their cool when Satan starts to tempt them. This leads to an absolutely unexpected climax where quasi bizarre events expose the gullibility of people believing in miracles. The film's comical effect has been created by three leading actors of french cinema : Michel Serrault who does does not speak much, Jean Poiret who shares maximum screen space and Jeanne Moreau who amazed even many of her loyal fans in a completely deglamorized role. Watching these three on DVD would be a great way to understand what Lourdes means to non believers.
