The film"s page

In 1431, Joan is taken to the castle of Rouen in chains to be tried by an Ecclesiastical Court under the English invaders' command. She faces this outrage with disarming humility. Found guilty of heresy, she is sentenced to die at the stake; she is burned alive amidst the jeers of the crowd. Carl-Theodor Dreyer's restored masterpiece.
