Joan (Maria Falconetti) is on trial and claims to be on a mission by God to drive the English from France. Performance from Falconetti was authentic and score wonderful. Pace was not that enticing and backdrop not as impressive. Camera direction was superb with close-ups and overhead shots. Topics on morality and religion were exemplefied. Passion of Joan of Arc, The (passion de Jeanne d'Arc, La) is a descent look at one of the influentual films based on acting and direction.

An emotionally-wrenching drama that is marked by the director's choice of shooting the most intense dramatic scenes in close-up. A masterful tale of dedication that still holds up today.

I really love Joan of Arc but Renee Maria Falconetti freaks me out. I really cannot stand this version of Joan of Arc. Dreyer has much better movies.

I am not fond of this silent masterpiece. Mme. Renee Maria Falconetti has always scared me to death. Her ugly face and shaved head. This actually scares me, despite the fact I love Joan of Arc so much and that people are usually moved by this film. I prefer other movies by Carl Th Dreyer (Ordet for example).
