Joan of Arc
- Dashiell B.
An overlong, but faithful adaptation of the play based on the French martyr. It's sometimes difficult to believe Bergman as the 19-year old knight, a performance that earned her an Oscar nomination, Ferrer was nominated as the Dauphin. Won Academy Awards for costume design, cinematography & a special award for producer Wanger; there isn't enough action scenes to match the dialogue-ridden scenes. A good, but not a fantastic film. I give it a 3/5.
Joan of Arc gets 4 Stars ! Faithful retelling.
Victor Fleming firmly directs this Classic Story of a peasant girl , who is directed by heavenly voices to lead the French to victory of the intrusive English army. Not short on dialogue , this film duly dwells on the narrative over action. Joan of Arc(Ingrid Bergman) delivers a sincere performance as the ill-fated girl, whose destiny is to lead the French army, and then be betrayed by the very people she helped. Just goes to show you, don't tell people you hear voices, or are lead by God, just doesn't work on Earth. Film runs 145 minutes, so get the small soda... 4 stars out of 5. George Zucco included in the cast. Very underrated performer, best known for his "Mummy" films.
Exceptional and under-rated classic!
Ingrid Bergemman at her best. An inspirational movie that at the same time illustrates the problems of politics in religion. A must see for younger viewer who need a real-life heroinne to believe in.
