Canonized as a saint on the eve of World War I, Joan of Arc remains France’s national heroine and a symbol of French pride.

The film constantly draws a parallel between modern and period images, going back as far as the early 20th century to show the evolution of Paris and the means of transport with which to discover the city. The early-day images are juxtaposed, not to say superimposed, with modern scenes so that the viewer has the impression of permanently being conveyed through time aboard a city on the move.
