Another Joan d'Arc
on 3 December 2006
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.
