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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film has all of the vigor and pure cinematic originality of Abel Gance's Napoleon without all the pretensions to greatness shouldered by that film."
‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
