The closest story of Joan of Arc as of all movies about her
Sandrine Bonnaire captured my attention in this old early 90s movie which can give the impression that it's 60s or 70s something movie.
I was eight years old when the two part movie came out, but I only seen it this year. The story really is the most original of all the movies made about Joan of Arc, like Joan of Arc (1999) and The Messenger (1999), these movies couldn't compare to Jeanne la Pucelle. What's original, you hear the French speak French and the English speak English like it would have been at the time of the real Joan of Arc, the 1999 movies don't have that.
When Joan is burned to the stake, she's dressed like a priest (with some sort of pointy hat like the pope), holds her hands in prayer with a small cross in between, screams once for Jesus and the ending credits appear. As I watched this, I stood in front of my TV making the sign of the cross, it was a very sad part, but was the best ending in a Joan of Arcs movie do to the drama.
