Like Dreyer's more famous work, Bresson's pared-back film relies upon the original court manuscripts and draws its force from the merciless and penetrating close-ups of cinematographer LĂ©once-Henri Burel and the fugitive facial expressions of Jeanne and her judges.

One of the director's least seen films, it combines precise editing and composition with an exquisitely modulated soundtrack.

Special Jury Prize at the 1962 Cannes Film Festival.
