Johanna d'Arc of Mongolia
Ulrike Ottinger
2 hrs., 45 min., subtitled

In this tri-lingual epic, Delphine Seyrig plays the elegant ethnographer Lady Windomere, one of seven western women who are kidnaped by a tribe of Mongolian female warriors while traveling on the Trans-Siberian Railroad. As fantastic as this tale sounds, it is as much substantiated by historical and ethnographical research as it is just another one of Ottinger's fictions of transformation, metamorphosis and the problem of dealing with otherness.
