This is yet another retelling of the 15th Century classic tale of the Maid of Orléans: the young girl who led France's armies victoriously against English invaders, and whose only thanks was to be burnt at the stake.

This latest from Fifth Element director Luc Besson once again finds Milla Jovovich (Joan of Arc) intent on saving her world, France. As a 10-year-old, Joan is visited by God for the first time. In her later teens, Joan is a doe-eyed gamine, shouting, shuddering and swinging a broadsword, seeming not quite up to the task. She gets no help from her royal advocates Charles VII (John Malkovich), and Yolande D'Aragon (Faye Dunaway), or from her Conscience (Dustin Hoffman) a spiritual entity who appears to her in her darkest hour.
