Joan of Arc

Movie Review:
Genre: Documentary
Runtime: 1 hr
Release Date: March 20th, 2005

JOAN OF ARC: CHILD OF WAR, SOLDIER OF GOD is a wonderful documentary. Based in part on Joan’s actual testimony, the story starts in 1423 where Joan is a young French girl who starts to hear from God. He calls her to liberate France. At 17, she leaves home in the midst of another attack on her village by the English and Burgundians and convinces the heir to the throne to turn over the army to her. Miraculously, she leads the army to an incredible series of victories. When she decides to march on Paris, Charles pulls his support from her, and Joan is captured and eventually burned at the stake for heresy by the English.

This documentary tells Joan’s story in a clear, entertaining and very Christian way. To underline how entertaining it was, several young people who were going to watch another movie got caught up in the documentary. Having read a considerable amount about Joan, it should be pointed out that there are other points of view. However, this program itself is exemplary and a tremendous witness to whoever sees it. Therefore, we commend the program and its perspective.
