At last on DVD! A brilliant film - French revolutionaries portrayed, not as bloodthirsty loons, but human beings struggling to keep a tiger by the tail, torn between personal loyalties and an increasingly desperate political situation. Made at the time of Poland's Solidarity movement, it also has contemporary resonance. Oh, and it looks fantastic, too! One quibble - there is no subtitle-free option on the DVD for those of us with OK French (yes - in reference to the other review here - it did help my O-Level, 20 years ago!). One of my top 5 films of all time - GET IT!!
