Jessica Hausner
Christine is a prisoner of her paralysis. Her range of vision is restricted to a small fragment of the world. She lives only half a life, but she desperately wants to take part in the world around her and to lead a whole life. Christine’s handicap is a me-tapher for feelings of inadequacy and imperfection and the miracle incarnates her desire to live a better life.
