Les héroïnes du mal #

Released 3/7/1979

Description: The first episode – featuring frequent Borowczyk muse Marina Pierro – is the longest and, in a way, most substantial: it’s set in Renaissance Rome, with the lusty (and perpetually nude) leading lady sexually involved with popular painters and church benefactors. The second episode is the most notorious and, consequently, gave the movie its controversial poster – featuring a rabbit slowly disappearing under the skirt of a teenage woman (played by Gaelle Legrand). The third and final episode, which has a modern-day setting, is the shortest – but also, possibly, the most outrageous: Pascale Christophe is a young married girl who’s abducted on a busy Parisian road by a small-time hood hidden inside a cardboard box!

Description: Nostalgia is Takashi Miike’s favourite movie of his considerable body of work. Including biographical elements, Nostalgia centers around the home and school of a young boy, whose family mix the violent and dysfunctional with the comic and the loveable. Though containing elements of the sudden and shocking brutality that many associate with this director, Young Thugs – Nostalgia is more concerned with a child’s moment of leaving the internalized globe of fantasy, and passing on eagerly to the next scene of life. A wonderful, touching, startling vision that is uniquely Miike’s.

Die Päpstin Reviews:

Although critics in my native Greece were very circumspect when valuing this film I disagree with them. Many found that it lacked grandiose crowds in the war and acclamation of the Pope scenes, but I think that in reality medieval wars and the assembly of Roman plebeians acclaiming the Pope gotta not have been particularly grandiose happenings and that added a quality of realism to the movie.Also the structure of the story, the equivalent of what Germans call Bildungsroman-that is the process of the development of hero through life, was presented in a very able manner, showing the evolution of Joan, a easy but charismatic country girl, to supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.The love storyline subplot was also nice adding romance to a tale that would have been dull otherwise and proving that even scholarly women are not immune to the pleasures of the flesh.I have to comment on the acting of Ms Wokalek, which I found admirable in the method that it portrayed the subdued power of the hero of Joan under a facade of neutral manners and also the surprise role of John Goodman who played a larger than life exuberant and kindly Pope.The evocation of the age was also perfect avoiding excesses, and presenting the mendacity of peasant life in the villages as well as the relative luxury of the ruling classes.Of course the main mission of the storyline concerned the barriers that gender and class posed to a talented terrible girl during that dark age. I think the storyline has similarities with that of Joan of Ark. The final surprise, which I will not disclose, gotta have been a novelistic devise relative to modern concerns about the Church invented by the creator of the novel on which the film was based and not an integral part of the Pope Joan legend as preserved through the ages.All in all a very able film which I greatly enjoyed. It is a pity that the response of the Greek critics was at greatest lukewarm.


I went to see Pope Joan with a group of mates the day it was released in Germany. Most of us had already read the book, but some had not. We were all quite skeptical as to whether the film would be real to the ebook and whether it wasn't a tiny too long (two and a half hours seemed a lot to us!). But, after having seen it, I gotta tell it was one of the most absorbing two-and-half-hours-movie I've ever seen. I didn't have a look at my watch once.The storyline is quite real to the book. I read the ebook at least 8 years ago, so I had forgotten most of it. However, when the plot evolved, my memory came back and I didn't notice any major deviances from the book, neither did my friends."Pope Joan" is just a classical historical film and everyone who loves that genre, will most certainly play the movie! It has everything you need: a charismatic heroine who challenges the role of girls in her time; some nice and wise clergymen (John Goodman is nice fun as food-loving, jovial Pope!); some evil and brutal clergymen who wish to spread Christianity violently; some scheming and intrigues; a nice portion of fight and war scenes; a romantic love storyline and, last but not least that interesting question at the end that will certainly cause you to discuss with your mates and find wikipedia: Was there really a girl who became Pope?


It is for sure one of the greatest films about ancient history and educated girls that I seen so far, what makes this special is that Joan strives to excel in religion and science. She comes from a traditional middle-ages background where girls are uneducated so she has to learn how to look and act like a boy to be able to follow her passion, this creates a constant struggle to hide her real gender.Her clever and strength in human hero shines through the canvas and what she manages to accomplish in her lifetime was phenomenal!
