Storyline

Joan of Arc is born in 1412 in the village of Domrémy in the war zone of Northern France. During her youth she often witnesses the horrors of war, but her spirit is kept high by the legend of the Maiden of Lorraine. This says that a young maiden one day will unite the divided country and lead the people to freedom. 11 years old she starts hearing voices from Saint Catherine and Archangel Michael. Through them she is commissioned by God to go to Prince Charles in Chinon, to convince him to become the King of France and drive the English occupants away. Charles thinks that Joan could be the catalyst that animates his disheartened troops. He commissions her to lead the army together with captain La Hire. After their victory at Orléans Joan participates in the coronation of Charles in Reims. Bishop Cauchon accuses her of heresy, and is relocated to Northern France, where he associates with the English occupants. Joan breaks Charles treaty with Burgundy by attacking Paris. Her troops are ... Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

Magnificent and spectacular historic television film based on Joan of Arc's life
17 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

The movie is set in ¨Hundred years war¨ developed between 1337 and 1453 ( downfall date of Constantinopla by Turks). The historical deeds are the following : Henry V vanquishes Charles VI in Agincourt (1415) that was a major English victory against a numerically superior French army in the Hundred Years' War . The battle occurred on Friday, 25 October 1415 and Henry V takes over on Normandy . Charles VI of France signs ¨Troyes treatise¨ in which Henry V is wedded to Charles's daughter . Later on , Henry VI of England proclaims himself king of France but then Joan of Arc proclaims in Bourges to Charles VII as king , after being crowned in Reims . Joan of Arc acting as a divine mission defeats English army in Orleans . But she's captured by the Borgoneses and is handed over to English authorities and they fire her for heretic and witch in Rouen.

Runtime movie is overlong , approx. three hours , but is neither boring , nor dull but entertaining. The battle scenarios are very well designed , there are thousands extras and the struggles are breathtaking . The ending trial in which she's condemned is very interesting and the sentence at the burning pole is overwhelming . Lelee Sobieski's interpretation is riveting likeness to Neal Patrick Harris as Charles VII . Peter O'Toole as the Bishop is excellent . The support cast is satisfying : Jacqueline Bisset (the mother), Powers Boothe(the father) , Olimpia Dukakis( the nun) and Peter Strauss (the captain).

The yarn will appeal to historic event buffs. Rating : 7/10 . Worth viewing the TV picture .
