"Seems to be very close to the historical record. They obviously softened Cauchon's role for Peter O'Toole and consolidated the three military leaders into Peter Strauss' role. I preferred the fire in Mila Jovovich's portrayal (but hated everything else about "The Messenger.") Mark Twain's version (The Story of Joan of Arc) is great reading, classic Twain, and surprisingly even more accurate than any movie yet made on Joan. I highly recommend both this video and Mark Twain's book."

"This video though very long does an excellant job of depicting the rise and demise of this courageous though naive French peasant girl. The acting of Powers Boothe and Sir Peter O'Toole is excellant. For a change, it seems that Hollywood tried to get the History correct."

"This movie is perfect for someone looking to watch a more modern rendition of the story of the martyr Joan of Arc. Though it has battles, it is not violent and well deserving of a PG rating, (it does not have a rating). Lee Lee Sokieski makes a striking Joan, while Neil Patrick Harris plays King Charles."
