A IS FOR AUSTRIA and F IS FOR FRANCE
A beautiful film on the power of faith and belief, and the omissions we’re willing to make for their sake, set in France’s leading religious miracle site. I love the depiction of so many people with disabilities on film, even if not all roles could be played by the real disabled. That said, the power of this film is that it’s open to interpretation depending on one’s view of religion, and this is how we should approach the subject always. It offers so much subtle commentary. And Gilette Barbier as silent Madame Carré and Elina Lowenson as Celine are mesmerizing.
