Stunning cinematography by Gunther Krampf, stirring score by Peter Krauder and superlative production design as always by Rohrig and Herlth. The Duke of Burgundy as played by Heinrich George is a drunken buffoon and Gustaf Grundgens as Charles VII is more pragmatic politician than monarch. Both actors are superb. Although almost a secondary character in this, the title role is beautifully played by Angela Salloker and her first meeting with the King is highly effective. Very well lit by Krampf to emphasize her saintliness.
The film is extremely effective propaganda. The French in particular are shown as monsters of duplicity and treachery. Neither are the English shown in a favorable light courtesy of Erich Ponto whose portrayal of Lord Talbot is the epitome of cruelty and venality.
