Abstract

In another masterpiece work, director Andrzej Wajda uses the Frech Revolution to criticize state repression of Poland's Solidarity movement. Revolutionary leader Georges Danton returns to Paris after Robespierre establishes the Reign of Terror to suppress his enemies. Despite their friendship, Robespierre turns on the very popular and outspoken Danton. Danton's trial and execution represent a betrayal of revolutionary principles.
