A day will come, when the slaves will break their chains and when the wretched will join forces to raise their cry of rebellion.
This week Netflix dropped the first (violent, bloody… spooky?) trailer for a new original series: a French language, alt-history drama set during late 18th-century France.
But La Révolution does not appear to be simply a retelling of the revolution as you might have learned in your history class. There is something seemingly supernatural in this version of events.
It has been described by Netflix as ” a reimagined history of the French Revolution,” but we’re not sure that captures the intrigue of what we witnessed watching the trailer.
Along with an errie, techno, Dracula-esque soundtrack, this is sure to be a rather intense, gruelling watch — and perhaps one outside your usual programming.
The cast for the series includes Amir El Kacem, Lionel Erdogan, Marilou Aussilloux, Laurent Lucas and Julien Frison.
La Révolution debuts on Netflix a month from today on Friday, October 16, 2020.
