This is an elaborate production for its time, with 11 tableaux, 250 meters and a runtime of 10 minutes. Additionally, the print accessible on the Flicker Alley set is wonderfully hand-colored. There's also a great vision scene-within-a-scene, which is a rather common, but appreciated, occurrence in early films. On the another hand, this early storyline movie especially seems to be bogged down by Méliès's typical theatrical style, perhaps because it's a historical reenactment movie rather than some amusing fantasy or fairytale. I don't search it as entertaining as his soon movies such as "Bluebeard" (1901), "A Trip to the Moon" (1902) and "The Kingdom of the Fairies" (1903), which more greatly overcome their stagy and primitive qualities. For instance, the revolving parade stage and the lame war are goofed even for 1900. In addition, Méliès plays too many various roles in this one, which should have been confusing without the lecture provided.Nevertheless, it would take a couple years before another movie pioneers, including Edwin S. Porter, Robert W. Paul and Ferdinand Zecca, to name a few, began to create narrative movies to compare to this one. "Joan of Arc" came on the heels of Méliès's earlier and first super-production "Cinderella" (1899), which, like this film, connected its tableaux by dissolves. "Joan of Arc" is somewhat more polished than "Cinderella" was, as, likewise, Méliès's soon féeries (fairy films) are more refined and sophisticated than this film.Also of note, Joan of Arc has everytime been a famous screen subject. The first filmed ver I know of was by the Edison Company in 1895. The Lumiére Company made a shot-scene reenactment of the trial, titled "Execution of Joan of Arc" (Exécution de Jeanne d'Arc), just a year before Méliès's film. The Lumiére film, which has been accessible on home video, isn't worthwhile except for perhaps that it, too, survives in a hand-colored print. When I saw it, and when considering its game and that they only had a single shot-scene, I wondered why they wouldn't test the hand coloring to exploit the attraction of a burning at the stake. Méliès didn't miss occasions like that.
Joan Of Arc (1900) *** 1/2 (out of 4) aka Jeanne d'Arc Breathtaking ver of the classic storyline says the life and death of the one and only Joan of Arc. This movie is special for many various reasons including the fact that it runs ten mins long, which certainly wasn't common for the day. Other special factor is that the whole movie was hand colourful and this is where the real beauty of the film comes into play. The colors of the movie are downright brilliantly done and makes another color movies from this period look quite poor. The red colors of the dresses and the bright lime colors are pretty to look at. The storyline is also said through narration and this is other plus as it's able to say us a lot about what we're watching and it also points out the different roles being played by Melies. This movie holds up incredibly well today and is one that would probably be enjoyed by plenty of children who wouldn't normally watch a movie from 1900.
This was cute good. The coloring was nice, the sets were nice and the war and execution scenes were cool, too. It does receive a tiny boring at the beginning, but overall, its cute sweet.
