Recently voted one of the Top 10 Greatest Films of All-Time by Sight & Sound magazine, Carl Theodor Dreyer's mesmeric film, The Passion of Joan Of Arc comes to UK Blu-ray and DVD on 19 November, courtesy of Eureka Entertainment's Masters of Cinema series. Maria Falconetti's stunning performance as the doomed young Christian rebel, is often hailed as one of the greatest displays of screen acting ever committed to film, and Dreyer's haunting, powerful and tragic silent classic has never looked better than in this stunning new restoration.
The release includes a piano score performed by silent film composer Mie Yanashita for the 20 frames-per-second version, and a radical accompaniment by esteemed American avant-garde musician Loren Connors for the 24 fps presentation, as well as both Dreyer's Director's Cut and the Lo Duca version that circulated in Europe for decades. The release will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and as a Limited Edition Steelbook Dual Format edition.
