Author(s): Attolini, Vito.
Contributor(s):
Title : Giovanna d'Arco guerriera e santa [the role of Joan of Arc appeals to actresses because the protagonist of the film tends to dominate events; the director, however, has to deal with the supernatural elements in the story; some, like Luc Besson, strive for a worldly presentation of Joan as a rebel; Christian Duguay takes a more literal-minded approach, using angelic images that border on kitsch].

Title : The Sorceress and the Greyhound [the author argues that the film "The Sorceress" though based in part on Jean-Claude Schmitt's book, "The Holy Greyhound: Guinefort, Healer of Children Since the Thirteenth Century," is in nearly all aspects a modern fantasy; the author criticizes in particular the film's depiction of religion and the village women as ignorant and concerned only with their infants].
