“Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (French: Jeannette, l’enfance de Jeanne d’Arc) is a 2017 French musical film directed by Bruno Dumont. It was screened in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The script is an adaptation of the play “The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of Arc”, written in 1910 by the Catholic author Charles Péguy.

In the Boston Globe, Ty Burr described the film as “very likely the first medieval heavy-metal musical ever to grace the silver screen” and “deeply and unsettlingly strange”, providing “genuine oddball pleasures amid stretches of real tedium”.”(Wikipedia)

Music is by the French band Igorr.
