(Andrzej Wajda, 1983) 136 min, colour, cert 12, French with English subtitles
Gérard Depardieu and Wojciech Pszoniak star in this powerful depiction of the ideological clash between the earthy, man-of-the-people Georges Danton and icy Jacobin extemist Maximilien Robespierre, both key figures of the French Revolution. Drawing many parallels to volatile political situation of his contemporary Poland, Andrzej Wajda's Danton has rightly been hailed as one of the greatest films ever made about the Terror.
