Warrior Women: Joan of Arc
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
This five-program series pays tribute to history's most charismatic women warriors. These action-packed episodes shot on location in France, Ireland, Britain, China, and North America will combine a heady mix of historical sleuthing and provocative reconstruction. Each episode of Warrior Women investigates the intimate, gritty details of the life and times of these great true-life women warriors, and celebrates the popular mythology that surrounds them. Convinced by the voices of saints to step forth and serve her deposed king, Joan of Arc became an unlikely war hero. With 10,000 beaten men and very long odds against the advancing English army, she scored a miraculous string of victories over the rather surprised English battalions by leading the charge into their front lines. She even returned the throne to Charles VII, but it all went horribly wrong when she was finally captured, tried for witchcraft and heresy, and burned at the stake.

it is narrated by Lucy Lawless and is well done. It's forty five minutes long and this company prints their products on dvdr's for some reason. That is a minus but the show is a good one about saint joan. And what a incredible , tragic and herioc and even awful life she lived. This made me realize how brave and incredibly strong willed she was. She really believed in herself and her times were so nightmarish that it's inspiring how she even attemped to do what she did. She was only a kid and yet few would ever claim to be as brave as she was. Her rape and hideous death by being burned alive are only part of the story. The king she served was not a good man by any means of the word imo, Still the photography is good here and they do some recreations. So this is NO movie , it's good though.
