FRANCE | 138 minutes | 2019

It’s 1429. As she prepares to lead the battle of Paris, Joan of Arc has no inkling that she will mark history, be imprisoned by the Burgundians, stand trial in Rouen, be accused of witchcraft and burnt at the stake. After Jeanette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc, Bruno Dumont continues his adaptation of Charles Péguy’s play with a second instalment that’s more stripped-down, contemplative and visceral, where the unshakable conviction of the heroine (astonishingly played by the young Lise Leplat Prudhomme) and the delectably off-the-wall score by Christophe are equalled only by the absurdity and cruelty of Joan’s tragic destiny.

"Dumont’s boldest move, and the one that provides the film’s emotive drive, is the casting of 10-year-old Lise Leplat Prudhomme as Joan. She was the younger Joan in Jeanette, and more than lives up to the role’s iconic dimensions, partly because of her seraphic looks and clear, defiant gaze, which confronts the men around her like lasers set to full power." Screendaily
