A Two-Part Epic by Jacques Rivette

In this extraordinary, two-part historical epic, director Jacques Rivette (La Belle Noiseuse, La Religieuse) presents a fresh, brilliant re-interpretation of one of the great historical figures of all time - Joan Of Arc. Joan The Maid features a spectacular performance by Sandrine Bonnaire that the New York Times calls "unadorned but magnetic."

Joan The Maid offers an amazing portrayal of a simple young woman who is driven by her belief that she is destined to save France. Joan The Maid: The Battles follows Joan from her birth, through her response to inner voices, to triumphant early victories over the English. Joan The Maid: The Prisons continues with Joan and the Dauphin of France embarking on a series of victories. But Joan is eventually captured and imprisoned. She is tried for sorcery, impurity, wearing men's clothing, and refusing to submit to English rule, then condemned as a heretic and burned at the stake.
