Please note

Sorry, we aren't able to make images or video for this item available to the public online.

Danton, a film of highly dramatic power, at once a mature study of the revolutionary mentality and an absorbing intellectual spectacle. “L’Incorruptible” Robespierre holds fast to the ideals of the French Revolution as it turns into a reign of terror. Tired of the bloodshed, Danton pleads for a negotiated peace with the enemies on France’s borders. Both are idealists. Both are right. Both are doomed. Stars Gerard Depardieu as Danton.
