La Commune (Paris1871) - PART 1 & 2 , by Peter Watkins - 2000

A war drama film mix between documentary and reportage and fiction which turned over common sense, a unique where people in the 19th century was interviewed and covered on television, many of them are working class but the bourgeoisie had not escaped from camera's observation, each recorded their speech and gestures even the revolt that led to extreme and radical and heartbreaking for the working class. One of the most important French film at 21st century.

In December 2002 Peter Watkins started the editing of an abridged theatrical version. In a prologue he expresses his views on discovering that the production company, 13 Production, has financial links with the Lagardère Group (which sells Military Weapons through Matra), then he warns the audience about how much of the sequence shots and live debates from the original full-length movie have been lost in the process of reducing the running time by more than 2 hours to 3 hrs 1/2.
