Finally got to watch this & it is very good, about as historically correct as you can expect from a movie. Surprisingly sympathetic portrayal of the Burgundian bishops trying Jeanne for heresy trying to get her to recant so she could be welcomed back into the arms of mother Church.
Very interesting character played by Dustin Hoffman listed in the credits as “the Conscience” at times seems almost like Satan in the old sense of “the accuser” and he batters her with doubts while she is in prison.
But right before her execution, when the Bishop has refused to hear her confession it is he who absolves her – so is he an hallucination, the last vision that God sent her or what?
Oddly, the film was directed by Luc Besson who wrote/directed La Femme Nikita, Leon: the Professional & The Fifth Element. Ste Jeanne seems rather a change of pace.
Anyway, see the movie if you get a chance.
