In this extraordinary, two-part historical epic, director Jacques Rivette 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 in 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" (112 min.) follows Joan from her birth, through her response to inner voices, to triumphant early victories over the English. "Joan the Maid: The Prisons" (116 min.) continues with Joan and the Dauphin of France embarking on a series of victories.
