With it's stunning camerawork and striking compositions, Dreyer's film convinced the world that movies could be art. Renee Falconetti (in her only role) gives one of the greatest performances ever recorded on film, as the young maiden who died for God and France. Long thought to have been lost to fire, the original version was miraculously found in perfect condition in 1981 - in a Norwegian mental institution. Based on the actual transcript of the trial, it remains a staggeringly intense, unbearably moving, and incredibly spiritual milestone of silent cinema.
