The French Revolution : The Light Years

The French Revolution : The Light Years

A Feature film by Robert Enrico

Produced by Les Films Ariane, Films A2

Release in France : 25/10/1989


    With its release timed to coincide with celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution (1789-94), this film is actually two films released under one general title.

    The first, subtitled The Light Years, covers the period from the first stirrings of the revolution (e.g., the convocation of the Estates General (the pre-revolutionary parliament) by King Louis the Sixteenth, through to the moment when the King throws himself on the mercy of the National Assembly (the post-revolutionary legislature) in 1792.
