Danton is a 1983 French language film depicting the last months of Georges Danton, one of the leaders of the French Revolution. It is an adaptation of the Polishmarker play The Danton Case by Stanislawa Przybyszewska.

The film stars Gérard Depardieu in the title role with Anne Alvaro as Eleonore Duplay. It was directed by the Polish director Andrzej Wajda and was an international co-production between companies in Francemarker, Polandmarker and West Germanymarker. All supporters of Danton (with the exception of Bourdon) are played by French actors, while Robespierre's allies are played by Poles. The film draws parallels between the Reign of Terror after the French Revolution and the situation in contemporary Poland, in which the Solidarity movement was struggling against the oppression of the Sovietmarker-backed Polish government.
