An all-star Euro cast, with the addition of Harvey Keitel as Thomas Paine, star in this philosophical pageant set in 1791 and following the ill-fated attempt to ecape the guillotine by Louis and Marie Antoinette. A collection of luminaries, including an ageing Casanova played by Marcello Mastroianni, and an Austrian Countess, Hanna Schygulla, race in a coach behind the French King and Queen, before they are captured by the people of Varennes. Along the way the group engage in various philosophical debate.
