The times are hard: The Hunderd Years war with England has been going on since 1337, English knights and soldiers roam the country. Jeanne develops into a very religious young woman, she confesses several times a day. At the age of 13, she has her first vision and finds a sword. When coming home with it, she finds the English leveling her home town. Years after that, in 1428, she knows her mission is to be ridding France of the English and so sets out to meet Charles, the Dauphin. In his desperate military situation, he welcomes all help and gives the maiden a chance to prove her divine mission. After the successful liberation of Orléans and Reims, the Dauphin can be crowned traditionally in the cathedral of Reims – and does not need her anymore, since his wishes are satisfied. Jeanne d’Arc gets set up in his trap and is imprisoned by the Burgundians. In a trial against her under English law, she can’t be forced to tell about her divine visions she has had continuously since childhood. Being condemned of witchcraft and being considered as relapsed heretic, she is sentenced to death. Jeanne d’Arc is burnt alive in the marketplace of Rouen on May 30th, 1431, at only 19 years of age.
Plot: In 1429 a teenage girl from a remote French village stood before her King with a message she claimed came from God; that she would defeat the world’s greatest army and liberate her country from its political and religious turmoil. Following her mission to reclaim god’s diminished kingdom – through her amazing victories until her violent and untimely death.

An amazing movie
I loved this movie. It’s visually stunning and the casting and acting was superb. The story was already layed out (approximately), so Luc Besson concentrated on Jeanne herself, the person and what she was like and why she did what she did.
I have to admit to putting myself in Jeanne’s place, feeling what she must have been feeling along the way. I think without that, it probably would have been a much duller movie, although probably entertaining.
The battles scenes, of which there were many, were graphic and brutal. Dismemberments, swords and maces swinging, lots of pain and death. The ensuing desolation at the end of a battle were weighty and gave a a horrible look at the conditions of the time.
My final impressions… Joan of Arc, if the portrayals were accurate was a driven young woman, deeply religious and deeply confused who was probably at least partially insane. If she were alive today, no doubt, she would be treated with common drugs and would lead a normal life. I felt very sorry for her and her situation and for the way that she was treated. I know people would argue that there is no need to feel this way, because she was clear and sure of her purpose. I don’t feel that this was ever the case and she was sure only that she was going crazy if she didn’t do something.
Movies don’t usually move me this way and I’m really amazed.
She never shined so much
We are already used to the original depictions Lus Besson did of humans on screen. How would he do with real events this time? I’m happy to say he suceeded. We are somewhat used to the regular “automatic pilot” depictions of Joan’s life, the woman who loved god above all things and believed she was sent to save her people from the clutches of the British. But here we are entitled to a much more personal point of view: Besson’s eye for Milla is particularly sensible, and we notice she as a particular shine no other character has. Therefore, we establish an empathy with her which starts even when she is only a child. The movie has a great period detail, and some incredible sequences, but, for some reason, it is the film by Besson that grabbed me the least, I can’t explain why, although that isn’t saying that I didn’t like. In fact, I think there are things about this movie I haven’t seen nowhere else, specially all the scenes where Joan hallucinates and has visions of God. This movie is totally different from all medieval adventures we have seen so far, and its shots are Luc Besson’s own. The all-stellar cast helps a lot, and Dustin Hoffman turn out welcome at the end. The battle scenes are a wow!Thierry Arboghast’s cinematography helps a lot to establish a cool look of medieval times, specially when fire is concerned. Eric Serra’s score reaches depth levels he has never reached before. A great film altogether, which deserves to be seen with the heart willing to take whatever we get from it. The title song “My Heart Calling” is one of the most beautiful Eric Serra wrote for the movies. I recommend it for Besson fans who will like certainly, and to all the others who aren’t, just for the fun of a different depiction of Joan’s life.
