Which is the best film Joan of Arc is one of those questions that film buffs reserve for a good long discussion. I found this one pretty good but not I think the best (for my sins I like the Messenger, so I'll apologise now). However, this manages to give us a pretty believable Middle Ages (everyone is covered in as much clothing as possible) although the American accents will seem out of place to British ears. The female lead manages to be both weak and powerful (as befits the Maid) and held her own in what is a most remarkable (and very sad) story against even Peter O'Toole in full flow.

This is not a bad film and can be recommended to anybody who does not know much about this story and would like to get a visual picture of it.

It is well filmed, and the director and the actors clearly respected their subject and tried to do their best.

However, the real story of Joan d'Arc is so astonishingly unique and so full of religious, spiritual, historic, local, personal, etc. messages, that it hardly can be explained without great diffulties.

The work of Peter O'Toole (bishop Cochon)is very impressive. Because of the story itself, and because of Peter O'Toole, the fill well can be recommended.

Careful how you load this disc as it is double sided and you might start viewing in the middle of the film. The disc itself offers no facilities other than play, chapters and trailer. This is actually a 1999 TV series, filmed originally as three one hour episodes, here they are run together into a 135 minute feature and I suspect some of the continuity errors are down to scene deletions. [lose a*]. Unlike most TV productions this doesn’t come across as a cheap production and was allegedly made on a $20 million budget.
The film opens to a scene of Joan being burned at the stake –so not for the squeamish [although it is rated 12]. It then goes into flashback to retell the classic story of Joan, from birth to death. The film soon shows Joans first experience of hearing the ’voices’ as she attends church. The good thing about this film is that even if you don’t know the details, it’s all explained [even if it is all heavily romanticised].
The problem with this film is that the subject of Joan is so rooted in religion, theology, mythology and legend [the original Maid of Lorraine prophesies] and occurred in an age that we have little real understanding of, that its difficult to separate fact from fiction. In this version, Neil Patrick Harris plays a convincing portrayal as the double dealing Dauphin, later King Charles VII of France. Leelee Sobieski plays an equally duplicitous Joan D'Arc who tells an unconvinced Dauphin she will pretend to be the ‘Maid of Lorraine’ in order to fulfil a prophecy and lead the Dauphanes army and yet tells everyone else she is the ‘Maid’.
Although the plot generally follows the broad historical path reasonably well, it does take many liberties with minor details and the general storyline.

I first saw this original 2-part production of Joan Of Arc on the Hallmark channel. Around the same time I also saw the big budget movie "Joan Of Arc: The Messenger", and there is no dispute for me, THIS 2-part version is by far the better one!
Leelee Sobieski plays Joan very well indeed, and the supporting cast are also excellent. The fact an actor as distinguished as Peter O'Toole is involved certainly adds favour to this version. He's fabulous as the Bishop Cauchon.
This is a very enjoyable movie, and everything is developed in a way that allows you to get to know the characters, even if they sometimes appear a bit "fairytale" at times. The other movie in comparison, appeared to go for the gruesome violence factor instead and totally lost any humanity.
The DVD is a little disappointing as it has been edited and cut down in length from that of the televised version. There are no extras to speak of either. But in terms of viewing and enjoyment this is the best Joan Of Arc produced so far!

This film is artistically beautiful, contains superb acting, and represents the life of Joan of Arc in an appropriately compelling and much more historically accurate manner than does the more or less contemporaneous Joan of Arc film entitled "The Messenger", (which is replete with misrepresentation). While this film does take some artistic license with a few historical facts, this is done respectfully, effectively, and in keeping with the spirit of truth represented. A truly wonderful and powerful film. I have watched it repeatedly and been moved by it each time.

This is a great movie, opposite to the other versions that have twisted a little too much on the original stories.
I was feeling the chill down my back while watching, and had a tear in my eyes for about the whole movie.
Leelee Sobieski must be doing some of the best acting I have seen in a long time. Could almost been taken for an historical documentation from 1400. Would not missed it for the world.

Liked it better than the one With Milla Jovowich. Leelee Sobieski has got a lot of presence and charisma. A few very disturbing and horrible scenes, but they go with the story. The film fitted well for educational purpose.
