Joan of Arc Reviews
November 15, 2013
Bergman's Joan is good but not great. I actually thought the earlier silent Passion of Joan of Arc was far more effective in helping us understand the range of emotions that Joan went through following her calling from God.

Captivating movie filled with drama. Inspirational, religiously enriching, heart wrenching throughout for the viewer already knows, from history. the ultimate outcome.
Emotionally draining. Five Stars! Mofak

Very theatrical film to be taken seriously and too disconnected to be kept in mind. Ingrid Bergman is pretty overacted as Joan of Arc and, unfortunately, the film hasn't aged well. I was waiting to watch something better and more inspiring, because the real Joan of Arc story is really inspiring.

A masterful film chronicling the life of St. Joan...with Ingrid illuminating the woman who has captured the hearts and souls of the French for centuries, and Victor Fleming at his best as director. Finally restored after being drastically altered in length, this version is how it was originally intended. A truly inspirational tale of a young woman, a desperate nation, and a faith that defied even the spectre of death.....too bad I cannot give it six stars.

Brilliant Film About A True Christian Saint.

**1/2 (out of four)
Disappointing and version of the story of Joan of Arc with Ingrid Bergman doing her best to own the role and only being somewaht successful.
The main problem may be that the film doesn't date very well. It doesn't seem like a timeless tale, but rather is caught up in 1940's over sentimentality.
