This intense and expressive portrait of Joan of Arc is consistently listed as one of the best silent films ever made. Director Dreyer captures the essence of her struggles through close-ups of her reactions, and the viewer feels intense sympathy as a result. Falconetti is honest and brilliant, and her raw, natural acting style is ahead of its time. A silent film event not to be missed!
