Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/28/1983
"...DANTON brilliantly illuminates one of the most fascinating periods of the French Revolution....A major work from this major film maker."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2006
"[I]t's hard not to warm to Depardieu's performance. He is all warmth and instinct..."

Product Description:

Gerard Depardieu and Wojciech Pszoniak star in Andrzej Wajda's powerful, intimate 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. By drawing parallels to Polish 'solidarity,' a movement that was being quashed by the government as the film went into production, Wajda drags history into the present. Meticulous and fiery, Danton has been hailed as one of the greatest films ever made about the Terror.
