A play within a play within a play within a play. Actors perform a play in a house, an audience member invites them to work in his own home improvising a play around his own life. The line between fiction and reality blur.
A part of Joan of Arc's life. At the beginning, Jeanne (Joan) has already left Domremy, she is trying to convince a captain to escort her to the Dauphin. It ends during Jeanne's first battle, at Orleans. Meanwhile, Jeanne is depicted more as a warrior than a saint (all cliches are avoided), with only her faith for strength.Written by
I found the performance flawless and would endorse it to any of my students, especially those of french history. The way in which the battles were portrayed on such a low budget would make any film fan proud. The mild problems in French English can be overlooked, and all I see is a wonderful performance by a gifted actress. The artillery fire was a bit drawn out, and some of the special effects teams may want to take a lesson in CG, and I found just two sound effects which were taken off Casablanca, perhaps as an omage. The cannons I can say were somewhat out of era, as the "le swine, Dvallalle models were not in production for another 15 years, and some of the long shots displayed these inaccuracies. Overall a great film.
