What kind of Death?
By Jack Anderson on October 28, 2019
 8

Released in 1928, The Passion of Joan of Arc is a remarkable achievement. In order to tell the story of the young Saint, filmmaker Carl Dreyer chooses to tells the story in a very original way. First, close-ups were rather rare in the movies from the 1920's. But this goes beyond close-ups, Dreyer decides that the landscape of his film will be Joan herself.
Ironically, the religious men of the time that devoted their lives to God could not accept that they would be faced by someone who's grace from God himself has touched. I believe that if God himself would have appeared, no one would have believed him.

Back to the film, Dreyer puts him faith into a young actress, Maria Falconetti (sometimes referred only as Falconetti). She's the canvas as well as the story. She's everything. He face is the ground and the elements. While the movie doesn't profoundly touches my soul like other movies have, I still believe it is a remarkable one. We don't need to be on the battlefield in order to understand Joan of Arc's story.

VERDICT
I give it 8 out of 10.
