Quote from: sevendaughters on May 07, 2019, 11:12:03 AMDANTON'S DEATH Visually it is A Play On TV but the acting quality is super high here - Ian Richardson (House of Cards guy, also is very Urquhart at times), Michael Higgins (Draughtsman's Contract), Zoe Wanamaker, and Danton is played by a guy called Norman Rodway who is a Shakespeare guy who usually plays the funny/verbose lower class roles - and the writing not too shabby either. Yes there's a lot of rousing speeches, but they do a lot with them. Story is that Danton and his pals are getting a bit tired with the white heat of the executions and denouncements and just want to chill now they've taken over. Robespierre is having none of it and thinks they should rule by terror. This means, ultimately, dealing with those against him. There's a court case but it is a farce and they don't show everything; they don't have to, it's in the title. It ends with Danton and pals getting executed in surprisingly good humour. Entertaining stuff.
