In the 15th Century, France is a defeated and ruined nation after the One Hundred Years War against England. The fourteen years old farm girl Joan of Arc claims to hear voices from Heaven asking her to lead God's Army against Orleans and crowning the weak Dauphin Charles VII as King of France. Joan gathers the people with her faith, forms an army and conquers Orleans.
What a cracking good movie this is - made in 1948 (before I was born, just lol) it boasts a fantastic cast, brilliant story well told, good battle scene and finally the tragic trial that led to Joan's death by burning. Everyone should make time to watch this piece of history, it's very moving.
