It is a relief, too, to see the lingering archaism of the earlier sections of the film swept away in an astonishing last third of quiet power.

It is probably the least dramatic film ever made about one of the most dramatic events in history -- the French Revolution.

Powerful and poignant, Renoir manages to make a direct, humanist statement about the decadance of the rich and the power of the masses without fuss or extravagance, never patronising or posturing.
