Joan of Arc, savior of France, was martyred by the English before reaching the age of 19. While the youth of the Maid of Orleans has imbued her imagery for centuries, what was she like at 8? Or 12? Bruno Dumont (Li’l Quinquin, 39th) brings the younger girl and her visions to rich life that let us appreciate the humanity so often hidden by sainthood. And did we mention the rock and roll score by Igorrr and the dancing nuns and saints?
