Movie Info

This French film from a Polish director explores a famous friendship soured by politics and corruption. Georges Danton (Gérard Depardieu) and Maximilien Robespierre (Wojciech Pszoniak) fought side by side during the French Revolution. But when Danton takes control of France and starts executing citizens in droves, Robespierre feels it his duty to challenge his one-time comrade. Robespierre goes to Paris to remove his old friend from power, but Danton will not go down without a fight.

Audience Reviews for Danton

  • May 05, 2017
    This interesting historical drama looks absolutely stunning (almost like a Delacroix painting) but is also overlong and feels too didactic (almost like a filmed History book, to be honest) despite two very intense performances by Gérard Depardieu and Wojciech Pszoniak.

    Gérard Depardieu's finest performance, Igor Luther's cinematography giving the settings an authentic feel, as do Yvonne Sassinot de Nesle's costume designs.

    An enlightening, unflattering exercise in French history highlighted by betrayal, corruption and Depardieu.
