DESCRIPTION

Times of the French Revolution. Jacobin terror continues, mass executions are taking place. Remaining under the influence of fanatical Robespierre, the Committee for Public Safety is intended to arrest the champion-of-the-people Danton on charges of counter-revolutionary activity and betrayal. The clash of both leaders will not bring agreement and will not be left without victims. Outstanding creations of Gerard Depardieu and Wojciech Pszoniak.
