Noooo....please don't do this to me!

That's what Joan said.

Passion of Joan!

The Passion of Joan of Arc simply resonates with me more on an emotional level than The Seventh Seal (and I say that as somebody who struggles to connect with silent cinema in any way).

For some reason I find it hard to connect with Seventh Seal even though I love Bergman. The Passion of Joan or Arc is in it's own universe in my opinion. Nothing in mind comes closer in showing the expression of the soul, not only in Falconetti's performance, but also in the relentless close-ups.

det sjunde insglet is excellent, but la passion is easily my preference
