Critic Reviews for Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (Jeannette l'enfance de Jeanne d'Arc)

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9)

"Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc" is very likely the first medieval heavy-metal musical ever to grace the silver screen. Sadly, it's not quite as fun as that sounds.

Top Critic

A challenging arthouse drama that has a slippery sense of humor and a whole lot of chutzpah.

April 13, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Jeannette" throws the modern back at the medieval, making no distinction between religious ecstasy and that experienced in certain contemporary contexts of music and ritual.

April 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Dumont's early work suggested a director who wanted to be the heir to Robert Bresson and the aforementioned Dreyer, titans of formal discipline and transcendent doubt. Now he wants to be Andy Kaufman.

April 10, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Jeannette succeeds in its earnestness, adapting its words from Charles Peguy's works, but countering it with the pure, joyous silliness of its presentation.

April 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Dumont films Joan's spiritual conflicts and confrontations with playful exuberance but avoids frivolity; the ardent actors infuse Joan's spirit of revolt with the eternal passions of youth.
