La Prière / The prayer at the Berlin Film Festival is a classically, solidly, well-told story about a French heroin addict who joins a Christian Catholic community of former addicts who live isolated in the Alps mountains and use manual work and prayer as a way to cure themselves.
Only, one addiction is quickly replaced by another: blind faith in God almighty.
Confirmation bias… confirms divine “miracles” and… well, go see the film. It’s worth it, if you’re interested in questions of addiction, faith and cognitive disfunction of a “civilized” Homo Sapiens driven by the needs of pleasure and reproduction.
