La Marseillaise

A Feature film by Jean Renoir

Produced by Societé d'Exploitation et de Distribution de Films (SEDIF)

Release in France : 02/02/1938

    Synopsis

    Jean Renoir's epic account of the French Revolution juxtaposes the opulent life of King Louis XVI with the poverty of the commoners who rose up to overthrow the monarchy in 1789. The film's title comes from the rallying song which grew out of the peasants' march on the Bastille.
