THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC
LA PASSION DE JEANNE D’ARC
1928, 82 min, France, Dir: Carl Theodor Dreyer

No mere biopic or conventional period piece, director Carl Theodor Dreyer's masterpiece is one of the landmarks of silent cinema. Renee Falconetti is heartbreaking as the legendary young woman who died for God and France in 1429. Dreyer's closeup-driven style brutally forces the audience to share her pain - no director, not even Bergman, has ever been as conscious of the camera's ability to explore the mysteries of the human face.
