Danton is a 1983 French language film adaptation of the play The Danton Case by Stanislawa Przybyszewska, depicting the last months of Georges Danton. It stars Gérard Depardieu in the title role and Anne Alvaro, directed by Andrzej Wajda. The film was made by the Polish director Andrzej Wajda and was an international co-production between companies in France, Poland and West Germany. All supporters of Danton (with exception to Bourdon) are played by French actors, while Robespierre's allies by Polish. There are significant ideological differences between Wajda's film and Przybyszewska's play, particularly with regard to the figure of Robespierre.
