Further information about the film's significance
18 August 2000 | by thornburySee all my reviews

This was the first 10,000 foot film made in the UK. There are numerous tinted sections, and the final scene (where Carton goes to the guillotine) is tinted in pink. The BFI have a viewing copy which - the last time I watched it - was still on nitrate film stock.
