As others have commented, it might have been more logical to take events up to the end of the Terror and show in apposition the fall of Robespierre. In the spring of the previous year 1791 Mirabeau had died, and with him had passed away the only man who was at all likely to prove a wise guide to the court. Even if you were to settle for an old-school cloak and dagger flick, Danton only delivers on the bare necessities. As for the subversive elements that define this political drama? He doesn't like Danton but he understands his value as a man of the people and therefore is hesitant to simply round up his allies and take them to the guillotine. This is how historical drama should be done. Robespierre tries to convince him that Danton is exploiting him, but is ignored. Danton discerned what the Girondins lacked the political genius to see, that this control of Paris could only be wisely effected by men who sympathized with the vehemence and energy of Paris, and understood that this vehemence and energy made the only force to which the Convention could look in resisting the Germans on the northeast frontier, and the friends of reaction in the interior.

En ese contraste, sin embargo, Danton representa también el político corrupto, frente a la integridad de Robespierre. It is an odd coincidence that the old rivalries of Dominicans and Franciscans in the democratic movement inside the Catholic Church should be recalled by the names of the two factions in the democratic movement of a later century away from the church. Robespierre longs for the unattainable. Danton había sido acusado de corrupción y de cobardía por los girondinos, pues había aprovechado su influencia política para enriquecerse y se había ausentado cada vez que se acercaba el peligro; su talante de vividor volvió a quedar de manifiesto cuando, tras enviudar, tomó por esposa a una joven de dieciséis años y se retiró algún tiempo de la política. The huge shift in Gérard Depardieu's career from the 1970s to the 1980s can be marked, of course, by his César win for Best Actor in The Last Metro. The position of the country was most alarming. They were brought back once more to the Tuileries, which from that time forth they rightly looked upon more as a prison than a palace or a home.

They had not expected such a cynical tale of power politics, show trials and cold-blooded judicial murder, familiar though it all was in under Soviet control. Robespierre was a political maximalist, driven by the desire to shape the society according to Rousseauvian principles. Tento článek je o francouzském politikovi. When the movie was released in Poland, the French actors were dubbed, and when the movie was released in France, the Polish actors were dubbed. However, I really wish the ending had been handled differently. Royalists, noblemen, refractory priests and foreign powers — all conspired to kill the republican ideal.

He deserves credit for insisting against his colleagues that they should not flee from Paris, but should remain firm at their posts, doing what they could to rule the fierce storm that was raging around them. All supporters of Danton with the exception of Bourdon, who would later betray him are played by French actors, while Robespierre's allies are played by Poles. The committee watched Hébert and his followers uneasily for many weeks, less perhaps from disapproval of their excesses than from apprehensions of their hostility to the committee's own power. He was not an atheist — his vision was to seek secularised eschatology but he found little understanding for his attempt to elevate Reason to the sphere of metaphysics. His garden was the French society, his ideas were seeds which had to be fertilised by blood, and dead branches had be cut off lest they poison the body politic.

Cold-blooded and aesthetic he's merciless in his drive for total control of France and sees himself on some divine mission. Regicide also created a point of no return. He afterwards spoke of himself as in some sense the author of this revolution, because a little while before, stung by some trait of factious perversity in the Girondins, he had openly cried out in the midst of the Convention, that if he could only find a hundred men, they would resist the oppressive authority of the Girondin commission of twelve. French cinema had always been very strong when comes the time to present historical subjects. At your heights one cannot breathe! Stanislawa Przybyszewska also tries to rehabilitate Robespierre in her play The Danton Case. The revolution could have stopped at the first stage with France becoming a constitutional monarchy.

His excessive attachment to morality makes him ruthless and immoral. As for his bodily presence, he had, to use his own account of it, the athletic shape and the stern physiognomy of the Liberty for which he was ready to die.
