Taking a page from Victor Hugo’s LES MISÉRABLES, Alice Guy-Blanché’s historical drama imagines a boy unwittingly caught up in an insurrection. Her surprisingly frank picture of military executions tempers the film’s sentimental ending. ON THE BARRICADE was one of the last films Guy-Blanché made in France before immigrating to the United States.
