Passion of Joan of Arc, The* (Restored Version)

  • 1999 ----- b & w ----- 82 min ----- dvd
  • (Written and directed by Carl Theodore Dreyer; with Renee Falconetti, Eugene Silvain, Andre Berley, Maurice Schutz, Antonin Artaud) With its stunning camerawork and striking composition, The Passion of Joan of Arc convinced the world that movies could be art. Renee Falconetti gives one of the greatest perfomances ever recorded on film, as the young maiden who died for God and France. Long thought to have been lost to fire, the original version was miraculously found in prefect condition in 1981--in a closet in a Norwegian mental institution. Includes: Richard Einhorn's Voices of Light used as a soundtrack option, and audio essay by Casper Tybjers, Dreyer scholar from the University of Copenhagen, and other Menu accessed options.
