Director: Philippe Ramos
"A very 21st-century Jeanne d'Arc: a manic-depressive victim of history whose story is only one strand in a crisscrossing skein." - Variety
Filmmaker Philippe Ramos takes a fresh approach to the Joan of Arc narrative, as he conjures a hitherto untold story of her ransoming by the British to the French.
With the voices that have guided her falling silent, Joan (Clémence Poesy) finds herself captured, suicidal and on her way to being burnt at the stake. But after escaping her French captors, she falls in with many of those wrapped up in the battle, including a compassionate healer (Thierry Frémont), a crazed preacher (Mathieu Amalric) and a deceitful British officer (Liam Cunningham).
A Joan of Arc told through the stories of others, The Silence of Joan offers a bold and atmospheric insight into the troubled mind of the heroic teen.
