Showing today at the Venice Film Festival: Lourdes, directed by Jessica Hausner

Synopsis from the Venice Film Festival's website:

Christine has been confined to a wheelchair for most of her life. In order to escape her isolation, she makes a journey to Lourdes, the iconic site of pilgrimage in the Pyrenees mountains. She wakes up one morning seemingly cured by a miracle. The leader of the pilgrimage group, a seductive 40-year-old volunteer from the Order of Malta, begins to take an interest in her. She tries to hold on to this newfound chance for happiness, while her cure provokes envy and admiration.

Unfortunately, no trailers or clips seem to be available, but if it gets distributed in the US, I will revisit the video situation.
