Dreyer’s Joan of Arc was based on the original transcripts of her trial but it isn’t the historical accuracy that keeps the film in your mind. It has gained almost mythical status largely due to Falconetti’s portrayal of Joan which is still considered to be the greatest performance in the history of cinema.
