the best version, Ingrid Bergman is magnificent
1 February 2006 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

There are rare moments on film where the actor gives and gives and gives. This is Ingrid Bergman at her best. Her monologues are magnificent. Her timing, her rhythm, the delivery of her lines are transcendent. Not only for Bergman fans, or fans of Joan of Arc, it is the best version of the film. You cannot beat this greatness of spirit. Many have tried, but none have succeeded. Highly recommended for those who love film, for sure, for those who teach film, and for those who teach acting. It is our great fortune that we live in an era of DVD technology, to have such quality of reproduction, matching the quality of acting. And Victor Fleming - well, he had the great karma and good fortune to be associated with some of the most fascinating films of the studio system, and fascinating actors on the big screen.
