This adaptation of Büchner's play, which fictionalizes the French Revolutionary power struggle between Danton and Robespierre, is competently made, but is empty. The film isn't particularly interesting, nor did it involve me deeply. I feel rather indifferent towards the entire production, which I think odd considering the film's source and that it's star driven, featuring Emil Jannings and Werner Krauss in the main roles. Director Dimitri Buchowetzki gives it a quick pacing, but that's noticeable rather than salient. The following year, Buchowetzki adapted "Othello" with the same two stars, and in that film, they shine. "Danton", an empty film, may be seen as a trial run in this respect.
