The Reviews for Danton (1983) 720p

The Committee for Public Safety (ka-chunk)Reviewed byonepotato2Vote: 2/10

The 33 percent of the nations nitwits that still support W. Bush would do well to see this movie, which shows the aftermath of the French revolution and the terror of 1794 as strikingly similar to the post 9/11 socio-political landscape. Maybe then they could stop worrying about saving face and take the a**-whupping they deserve. It's really a shame that when a politician ruins the country, those who voted for him can't be denied the right to ever vote again. They've clearly shown they have no sense of character.

What really stands out in this movie is the ambiguity of a character as hopelessly doctrinaire as Robespierre; a haunted empty man who simplistic reductive ideology can't help him elucidate the boundaries between safety and totalitarianism. Execution and murder. Self-defense and patriotism. His legalistic litmus tests aggravate the hopeless situation he's helped create. Sound like any belligerent, overprivileged, retarded Yale cheerleaders you know of?

Wojciech Pszoniak blows the slovenly Deparidieu off the screen. As sympathetic as Robespierres plight is, it's comforting to know that shortly after the film ends he'll have his jaw shot off and be sent to the guillotine.

An Excellent History LessonReviewed byFreedom060286Vote: 9/10

This film provides an excellent history lesson. During the Reign of Terror in early 1794, having already executed most of the aristocrats who were not able to flee France, Maximilien Robespierre and the Committee for Public Safety turned on other revolutionaries in order to consolidate power.

The movie has some very good actors, I was especially impressed by Boguslaw Linda's accurate portrayal of the bloodthirsty young Louis Antoine de Saint-Just, who was even more extreme than his close friend Robespierre.

When revolutionaries become tyrantsReviewed bygbill-74877Vote: 7/10

"In the name of the principles of the revolution, they have forgotten the revolution itself! They've established a dictatorship more ferocious than the aristocracy! Fearing the return of tyrants, they turned into tyrants! Fouquier, you were the one who said that the people wanted blood. That was a lie, that was lie, that was a lie. It's not the people, it's you who want blood. The people want only one thing and that's to live in peace."

With its wonderful costumes and period details, this film from Andrzej Wajda has high production value. (though avoid the English-dubbed version! It's awful.) Gerard Depardieu (Danton) and Wojciech Pszoniak (Robespierre) turn in strong performances as their characters try to out-maneuver one another during the Reign of Terror, the year after the French Revolution. Robespierre has been deciding who "enemies of the revolution" are and having them beheaded; Danton, one of the original revolutionaries and popular with the people, is alarmed and openly criticizes the direction the National Convention has taken. It's a simplified account and criticized for its inaccuracies, but despite those things, it's a little slice of history that's compelling on its own, and even more so since aspects of it have recurred in other times and places.

I have to believe this is why the story was compelling to Wajda. The parallel to the Soviet state not having lived up to the ideals of its revolution couldn't be clearer. Human rights were brutally abused, and millions killed during Stalin's terror, which lasted much longer. At the time the film was made, the solidarity movement for the workers of Poland was being suppressed by Soviet government, one that had been theoretically founded for the proletariat. The blatant hypocrisy we see in Robespierre, who becomes a tyrant, is a stand-in for the Soviets and Jaruzelski, and it's easy to think of world leaders who became dictators after overthrowing someone and gaining power themselves. There's a depressing truth about humanity at the bottom of this.

On the other hand, when Danton essentially says you cannot simply destroy newspaper presses, stifle courtroom reporters, and execute opponents to silence the truth, I was reminded of the line from Bulgakov, "Manuscripts don't burn." It's a view that ultimately the truth will come out, and optimism that dictatorships will fall. There is something empowering and inspirational about people caught up in a period of great change, and sticking to their ideals.

Wajda includes many moments where the leaders of the two factions are espousing their views in the ways you might expect, and also lots of little things, like Robespierre standing on this tip-toes behind the podium to appear taller. It helps keep the 136 film from ever lagging, and I was so engaged I found the time going by quickly. He saves his best moment for last, though, with the little child reciting the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. If nothing else, the people of tomorrow and history will judge us, he seems to say. Worth seeing.
