The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc

Factual error: Early in the movie, the Dauphin receives another letter from Joan (or her writer). The only person who ever wrote to the Dauphin about Joan was Robert du Baudricourt, and he wrote one letter, and it was about Joan, not for her.

The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the 2nd battle (when Joan got an arrow in the chest) she wakes up her soldiers the next morning and uses the tower to break down the English bridge. At the bottom of the bridge when its falling (inside the fort), no one is near the bridge when it's falling except the guy who bad-mouthed Joan earlier that morning. Then in another shot there are at least eight guys getting crushed by the bridge.

Joan of Arc: I did not come here to perform tricks. You're all much cleverer than I am. Me, I don't know A from B. But this much I do know. That while the people of France lie bleeding, you sit around in your fine clothes trying to deceive me, when you're only deceiving yourselves. You say you are men of God. but you do not see His hand in having guided me through 500 leagues of enemy country to bring you His help. Is that not proof enough? Do you still need more signs?
