“Jeannette, the childhood of Joan of Arc”, the musical of Bruno Dumont after Charles Péguy

“Jeannette, the childhood of Joan of Arc” is a musical. This writing, do not expect a dish in sauce of the style “The Ten Commandments”, version Élie Chouraqui and Pascal Obispo, or an adaptation in the mode “Joan of Arc Superstar”. There are, at the beginning, the texts that Charles Péguy dedicated to the Maid of Orleans: “Joan of Arc”, dating from 1897 while he was still an atheist, and “The mystery of the charity of Jeanne d ‘Arc’, of 1910, when he regained the Catholic faith. That already marks its difference. Then there is the look of Bruno Dumont. The director of ” Ma Loute ” presented in Cannes last year, and ” P’tit Quinquin ” in 2014, [ . . . ]

It would be a pity to limit the gaze on this film to those gags who often hold anachronism. It goes much further than that.
