Storyline

The young, sickly girl Bernadette comes from a poverty-stricken family. When the Virgin Mary appears to her in a cavern near Lourdes, no one takes the girl seriously, even when she digs up a wellspring at the Virgin's instructions The local authorities even try to hush up the entire incident. In vain, however, because when Empress Eugénie requests water from the spring for her sickly son, they are forced to acquiesce. And even the local priest is finally convinced. While taking his tuberculosis-stricken fiancé Claire to a sanatorium, the young doctor Henri Guillaumet meets Bernadette. The water from Lourdes' spring heals Claire's disease overnight, but the scientist in Henri doubts the miracle and wants to expose Bernadette as a liar. It is not until Henri again meets Bernadette, who has in the meantime become a nun and works as a nurse, that he finds a way to balance belief and modern science. And his love for Claire is strengthened as well. Written by Anonymous

simply touching
12 December 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Has someone told you this movie is a simple faith story? Right, it's true. And that is its strength. I found it moving and overall well-done. All the interpreters have the right face for their role, and the story, with a few negligible naiveté , is told in a plausible way. The plot develops at three levels: Bernadette's story (a young girl who lives in poverty and ignorance, surprised and frightened by the first apparition, then conquered by the grace and sweetness the Lady shows), and, after the apparitions, her life as a nun; a scientist's, who can't accept a miracle even when it happens to his wife; and a modern one, in which a photographer investigates about Lourdes and its story and runs into his ancestor's diary, bearing witness about his involvement in Bernadette's story and his developing awareness of Bernadette's honesty and his necessity to come to a compromise between science- in which he strongly had believed so far- and faith.
