“Danton” (1983) is one by him I love. I thought I would write about it now before 2016 slips away from us entirely. Why? Because Wajda died this year, aged 90, a year in which so many other luminaries in the arts and sport also left us (Alan Rickman, Leonard Cohen, Muhammad Ali and Johann Cruyff, to name just a few). A young Gérard Depardieu (sublime in his younger years as an actor) stars as Georges Danton (1759-94). His anguished performance as the doomed French revolutionary at the start of France’s new republic is truly remarkable and memorable, one that contributed greatly to the film winning a BAFTA award for Best Foreign Film. Danton’s former comrade-in-arms in the Revolution, now turned arch-enemy, is Maximilien Robespierre (1758-94), also played brilliantly by the Polish actor Wojciech Pszoniak, whose spoken French is impeccable.
But in temperament, disposition and bearing the two men were like night and day. Danton is outgoing, gregarious, generous, a man of the people, loved and trusted by them. It’s not just that he’s eloquent and articulate; he has heart. He cares about the plight of the people. Their degraded condition is the result of oppression and neglect. Overtaxed, poor and hungry, they’re despised as uncouth and illiterate by the Ancien Régime, meaning the crown and aristocracy. The common people exist to support the privileges of the wealthy. It’s how it’s always been, the way society is structured, and thus not to be tampered with.Read more ›
