Then you will need to watch the movie Danton (1993).

Here is the prompt:

In the article, “The French Revolution on Film: American and French Perspectives,” Casey Harison makes the case that most films about the French Revolution are so hopelessly biased against it that they esseitnally lack historical validity. Read that article (FrenchRevolutionFilm.pdf above) with an eye toward understanding the different ways that filmmakers have created negative or condescending interpretations of the French Revolution in their movies. Then debate whether the movie Danton (created by a Polish filmmaker) fits more comfortably into the pattern of depictions represented by American or French film making.
