Movie Info

In the 15th century, both France and England stake a blood claim for the French throne. Believing that God had chosen her, the young Joan leads the army of the King of France. When she is captured, the Church sends her for trial on charges of heresy. Refusing to accept the accusations, the graceful Joan of Arc will stay true to her mission.

  • Dumont's sequel to his 2017 musical Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc takes the formative years of a young Jehanne and shakes them until all the fun falls out of them.

  • This rhetorical stalemate may honor the writings of Catholic poet and essayist Charles Péguy... but it doesn't make for enthralling drama, least of all when the audience knows precisely where it's headed.

  • Many will find watching the 137-minute movie akin to being burnt at the stake.

  • I found this film ultimately exasperating: not quite funny enough to be funny, or serious enough to be serious, or passionate enough to be about the passion of Joan of Arc.

  • Jeanne is the wiser, raspier relative to the spry and turbulent Jeannette...Dumont teaches us how to experience this quite verbose film: attendant to song, glances, visual patterns, and the animated body above all else.

  • Actors were chosen more for their faces than for their acting skills, and humor is an exercise based on frustration. [Full Review in Spanish]
