The second part of Rivette’s diptych about Joan brought leading lady Sandrine Bonnaire a César Award nomination for her powerful performance. Joined in this installment by other excellent French actresses, including Edith Scob, Hélène de Fougerolles, and Nathalie Richard, Bonnaire taps into her character’s vulnerability as she plays out windows in the final two years of Joan’s life, from the battlefield victory to prison life to the stake.

A film by Jacques Rivette

[Rivette makes] living theater out of tragedy… Joan is neither saint, martyr nor witch, but a healthy young girl with a mission.”
