Epic Bergman

Posted: May 25, 2020 in Cool stuff, TV & Movies

If you want greatness, this is it. The 1948 movie “Joan Of Arc” with the great Ingrid Bergman. Shot in colour in a very theatrical way, her acting is second to none in this film. Give a true star a script like this and magic will happen. 72 years later it still holds up, and more. It may be old but I still have to see a version of this tale that evokes so much passion, such grandeur. With any other actress it could have fallen flat, with Bergman you have 140 minutes of cinematic history.

So glad to have this in the old collection now (as it has just seen release on DVD in Sweden).
