Part II just as good as part I, far from the boisterous and epic portrayal usually made of Jeanne the maiden. This movie places her in a simple attire and gives a sense of how simple people can resist to lofty minds often intoxicated by their political urges and ready to twist facts as long as it serves their objectives.
When sophisms prove not enough then comes the resort to brutal strength and the execution of the innocent young maiden. This is about the triumph of warriors who have enrolled their Church but who both find themselves defeated in the face of history. Everybody remembers Jeanne nobody knows the names of her tormentors.
