Maria Falconett is Jeanne d'Arc: a young peasant girl placed on trial on charges of heresy. When the ecclesiastical jurists attempt to force Jeanne to recant her claims of holy visions, Jeanne initially seems to waver. But if Jeanne is anything she's tenacious - and not even the threat of a gruesome death can shake her faith. Dreyer's most universally acclaimed masterpiece remains one of the most staggeringly intense films ever made.
