Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc

“Pitched somewhere between Straub-Huillet and Headbangers Ball, Monty Python and Messiaen, Bruno Dumont’s new feature…marks an unexpected and near-perfect synthesis of the French iconoclast’s many disparate interests and obsessions.”
—Jordan Cronk, Cinema Scope

In Jeanette, the always transgressive French director Bruno Dumont (L’humanité, Hadewijch) spins a story of the young Joan of Arc as only he can. A heavy metal–tinged musical featuring nonprofessional actors and sung in a cappella dialogue, his latest feature is funny, irreverent, often anachronistic, and ultimately a welcome addition to the canon of screen portraits of the revered saint. With a metal-meets-chamber music soundtrack by French musician Gautier Serre, aka Igorrr. (115 mins., DCP)
