Starring Vincent Lindon (The Measure of a Man), Xavier Giannoli’s intriguing and suspenseful film is an exploration of the nature of faith. Newly returned to France after a traumatic stint reporting from a war zone, journalist Jacques (Lindon) is contacted by a cardinal at the Vatican, who invites him to Rome for a special mission. A young girl named Anna (Galatea Bellugi) claims to have seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary, making her village a pilgrimage site, and Jacques is to determine if there is any veracity to her tale; but before long he begins to obsess over the mysterious investigation as a way to forget his own turmoil.
