5.0 out of 5 stars The best Joan of Arc biopic made so far., 9 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Joan Of Arc [DVD] (DVD)
Joan of Arc is a difficult subject for a film because everyone knows the ending and so many other films of Joan's life have been made. This film deals with the ending problem by putting it as the begining as well as the end and showing Joan's life between the parentheses of her martyrdom at the stake. Lee Lee Sobieski brings a youthful freshness to the role of Joan and skillfully manages to convince as someone who the soldiers would follow but someone who is human enough to be terrified of death at the stake and to cry out in terror and pain when the fire reaches her. Some slight historical inaccuracies but overall a well directed and brilliantly acted film that is the best of all the Joan biopics I have seen.
