The Sandrine Bonnaire's greatest performance !,
This review is from: Jeanne La Pucelle - Part 1: The Battles [DVD] (DVD)
Although she's too aged for playing a nineteen girl, Sandrine Bonnaire seems to be the real twin sister of Joan of Arc ! Such a powerfull performance is rare !
Rivette leeds us in a extraordinary travel in the XVth century, with its slowly pace of living, far away from our "modern" hysterical way of life...
This realistic direction is the best for showing us all the characters in their true humanity.
By this way, the mystical life of Joan seems us so simple and so natural that we could hear God talking to us !
Very great !!!
