The New Babylon (Novyy Vavilon)
In 1871, at the height of the Franco-Prussian War, a group of revolutionaries created the Paris Commune, an experiment in democratic government. An entire cross-section of Parisian citizenry comes alive during the rise and fall of this doomed effort, but the film especially focuses on the love affair between Louise, a shopgirl in the great department store known as the New Babylon, and a heroic young soldier.
