Bernadette( Visual )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahr 1858 erscheint der Müllerstochter Bernadette Soubirous in der Nähe von Lourdes eine weißgekleidete Frau, die sich als Jungfrau Maria zu erkennen gibt. Niemand will dem asthmakranken Mädchen glauben, doch immer mehr Menschen zieht es zu der Grotte, wo die Erscheinung stattfand. Schließlich stößt man dort auf eine Heilquelle, die den Segen der Kirche findet, als der Sohn des Kaisers durch ihr Wasser von einer tödlichen Krankheit geheilt wird. Bernadette selbst geht ins Kloster von Nevers, wo sie im Alter von 36 Jahren stirbt. Der fürs französische Fernsehen entstandene, von zwei glänzenden Hauptdarstellern getragene Film hält sich genau an die überlieferte Chronik, die er schlicht und voller Demut in Szene setzt, um damit die Bescheidenheit der Bernadette zu unterstreichen.
