I've seen this whole movie again this week and this movie is really amazing. Even if the viewer does not like Adventure type of movies, he/she will watch the whole movie and enjoy it. It's probably the most known Biography movie and it's really entertaining. I was afraid that knowledge of the plot would in some way take away the joy of watching, but it did not happen. Rich dialogues, which are the essence of this film, arouse respect, especially in the context of today's production. All of the characters were played very good, but my favorite one in this movie is the main role actor. Althought The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc is very underrated movie.... Show more
