Reel Times Reflections on Cinema The Best Films of 2010 1. LOURDES (Jessica Hausner, 2009) LOURDES asks what a miracle is, on whose terms one should be determined, and who is deserving of such a blessing. A marvelous Sylvie Testud plays a woman with severe multiple sclerosis who is healed while on a pilgrimage in the southwestern French town.
