A rather good but a little flat historical and semi documentary drama about the French Revolution and the trial of king Louis the XVI. Then his death by guillotine. You have no really leads here, but a bunch of characters, some inspired by the actual ones. Good cacting, directing and also editing. This film is a little too short for such a topic. Mabe it would have been wiser to put more power, more energy in the characterization, more strength in the story telling. But that's my own opinion.
Good guillotine scene, maybe the best ever on a screen.
