La revolution francaise / The French Revolution (1989) 2 x DVD9
La Revolution Francaise is a two-part film made in 1989 for the bicentennial of the French Revolution.
The film tries to tell a balanced story of the French Revolution, from just before the fall of the Bastille in 1789, through the fall of Robespierre in 1794. It focuses on Louis XIV and Marie-Antoinette, General Lafayette, and revolutionaries Desmoulins, Danton, and Robespierre.
We follow the internal politics of the revolution and also see the fall of the Bastille, the writing of the constitution and the Rights of Man, the women’s march on Versailles, the aftermath of the royals’ attempted flight to Varennes, the execution of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, and the Reign of Terror.
