Acţiunea se desfăşoară în timpul Revoluţiei franceze, avându-i în centru pe Danton şi Robespierre."Danton" evokes the Polish experience but from the safe distance of another country's history.The movie's official reception in Poland has angered Wajda and his staff here.It is impossible to show a film in Poland today that deals with such topics as freedom, conscience and revolution without evoking a powerful response."We are most painfully going through our own tragic history," remarked the Catholic weekly Tygodnik Powszechny in a thoughtful review of "Danton." "Starving for history's true shape, we greedily hunt for any analogies that would make it topical."

Full-house audiences are being drawn to it by word of mouth and thanks to the unfailing power of negative official reviews to arouse public interest.There is nothing overt in the film to signify a comparison to Poland.
