Synopsis
It was once said of Ingrid Bergman that she'd played Joan of Arc so often that she wouldn't be satisfied until she was burned at the stake. Actually, nobody ever said that, but someone should have. Directed by Bergman's then-husband Roberto Rossellini, Joan at the Stake is a nonmusical adaptation of the oratorio by Paul Claudel and Arthur Honegger. Essentially a glorified monologue, the film makes no bones about its theatricality. Bergman is impressive as always, far more so than the presentation. While not nearly as bad as its reputation suggests, Joan at the Stake was a box-office flop, principally because the torrid Bergman-Rossellini romance was old news by 1954. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
