Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc Regie Bruno Dumont
“Jeannette” throws the modern back at the medieval, making no distinction between religious ecstasy and that experienced in certain contemporary contexts of music and ritual. It’s a provocative proposition that yields a film of genuine spiritual dimension.

Discounting the sophistication of the natural lighting and minimalist camerawork, would anyone coming into the film without some foreknowledge of Dumont be able to tell that this is all intentional anti-comedy-type artistic strategy and not, say, some churchy production outfit’s memorably wrongheaded attempt at modernizing the life of a Catholic saint “for the kids”?

Such peculiarities in performance are perhaps symptomatic of a director who casts nonprofessionals as a rule, and his films are indeed charged by the dissonances between his precisely calibrated mise-en-scène and the less stable ground of his actors. But in Jeannette, a sense of the raw and inexpert has never been more pronounced, both in front of and behind the camera.
