The Movie

France is embroiled in the The Hundred Years War with England, and young Jeanne d’Aragon (milla Jovovich) hears the voice of God telling her to lead the French army into battle and defend their land against the British. Jeanne is dubbed “Joan of Arc,” and she bravely guides her army in holy battle.

Stop 1:50:25 Ends with Joan of Arc receiving several slaps to the face.


Joan is being held captive by the British when Satan (Dustin Hoffman) pays her a visit. When Joan asks Satan about his identity, he tries to confuse her by changing his appearance to resemble the young boy and later the young man she saw in her visions when God confirmed that he had chosen her for a special purpose. Once Joan rebukes Satan, he tries a new tactic where he mentally and spiritually tries to beat Joan down by questioning her ability to judge between good and evil and mocking her for thinking God needs her help. Despite her state of physical weakness, Joan holds on to what she knows is true and resists Satan’s lies.
