Danton (1983) - (Gérard Depardieu) Polish poster
This is a 27" x 39" Polish poster designed by Andrzej Pagowski for the 1983 Andrzej Wajda French/Polish/German film Danton based on the 1929 play The Danton Case by Stanisława Przybyszewska, screenplay by Jean-Claude Carrière and starring Gérard Depardieu as Georges Danton. Plot summary: In 1794 with the French revolution at its peak there is an intractable dispute between two old friends, revolutionary leader Maximilien Robespierre [Wojciech Pszoniak] and newspaper publisher Georges Danton, who is trying to use his considerable public influence to put a stop to the violence of The Terror. In a political trial, a reluctant Robespierre eventually has Danton declared an enemy of the state and sent to the guillotine.
