Along with Johnnie To's Office (2015) and Sion Sono's Tokyo Tribe (2014), Dumont has made one of the most unusual, singular, and best musicals in recent years. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- An ambitious, even overwhelming mash-up of cinematic tactics morphed into one delectable, original bauble. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- "Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc" is very likely the first medieval heavy-metal musical ever to grace the silver screen. Sadly, it's not quite as fun as that sounds. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The biggest problem with "Jeannette," beyond what some may consider the blasphemous elements, is that Dumont limits his story to the less compelling parts of Joan's life - before she took on the British occupiers. Full Review

Bruno Dumont's Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc [is] instantly stimulating: The story of France's patron saint who was martyred during the Hundred Years' War is told through the joyful noise of a heavy-metal musical. Full Review

Rating: B- -- Dumont's early work suggested a director who wanted to be the heir to Robert Bresson and the aforementioned Dreyer, titans of formal discipline and transcendent doubt. Now he wants to be Andy Kaufman. Full Review

t's a little more interesting in concept than in practice, though I cannot deny the true pleasure of watching stoic nuns doing a full choreographed dance in their habits. Full Review

A French musical exploring two formative periods of a young girl named Jeanette (Lise Leplat Prudhomme, and later Jeanne Voisin), who grows up to become the Catholic saint known as Joan of Arc. As a child in the 1400s, Jeanette first hears her heavenly calling to fight for her people, who are resisting invasion by the English during the Hundred Years' War. Directed by Bruno Dumont. Based on Charles Péguy's play "The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of Arc." Music composed by French producer IGORRR.
